Cancer Awareness and Survival
Nearly every family in the world is touched by cancer, which is now responsible for almost one in six deaths globally. On World Cancer Day (4 February) WHO highlights that cancer no longer needs to be a death sentence, as the capacity exists to reduce its burden and improve the survival and quality of life of people living with the disease. In May 2017 Member States came together around priority actions to ensure cancer care for all. World Health Assembly resolution WHA A70/A/CONF./9 "Cancer prevention and control in the context of an integrated approach "lays out a clear road map to realize the potential for prevention, early diagnosis, prompt treatment and palliative care for people with cancer.
