What is World Cancer Day?
World Cancer Day was made official at the first World Summit Against Cancer in 2000. The event took place in Paris and was attended by members of cancer organisations and government leaders from around the world. The “Charter of Paris against Cancer” was signed, outlining a global commitment to improving the quality of life of cancer patients, along with promoting increased investment in research, prevention and treatment.
You will find information concerning, above all, recent advances in the prevention and screening of common cancers, specifically this year those affecting men such as prostate cancer and cervical cancer in women here.
