World Cancer Day
Cancer cases are expected to rise from 14 million to 22 million per year by 2035, with the greatest burden occurring in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. However this is not a challenge of tomorrow. This is a Global Health challenge of today.
We can reverse the fact that 1 in 3 cancer cases are attributable to behavioral and dietary risk factors such as overweight and obesity, tobacco and alcohol intake, low fruit and vegetable consumption, and lack of physical activity.
We can address late diagnosis, lack of healthcare access and spiraling costs, sedentary lifestyles and industries profiting from this disease.
The World Health Organization have set the challenge of reducing premature cancer mortality by 25% by 2025. This target can be achieved. We know the solutions.
Through refocusing our healthcare, investing in treatment, implementing public health strategies, coordinating research, and monitoring the overall burden, we can achieve this goal together. We Can. I Can.
