World Cancer Day 2021

Taking place on 04 February, World Cancer Day takes a positive, proactive approach to the fight against cancer, and brings together countries across the globe to mark the day with events and activities.

World Cancer Day is organised by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the largest and oldest international cancer organisation dedicated to taking the lead in convening, capacity building and advocacy initiatives that unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the day and is themed ‘I Am and I Will’, which is all about you and your commitment to act.

We’re supporting World Cancer Day and are encouraging everyone to get involved and help raise awareness of occupational cancer and our No Time to Lose campaign.

The engagement resources we offer as part of No Time to Lose will help you communicate important messages on preventing occupational cancer and managing carcinogens such as asbestos, silica dust, solar radiation and diesel engine exhaust emissions within your organisation.

You can get involved in World Cancer Day in the following ways:
