World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day is recognized on February 4.  The Union for International Cancer Control established this to further the work of the World Cancer Declaration in 2008. A revamped version of the declaration was released in 2013. The overarching goals of the World Cancer Declaration are to achieve major reductions in premature deaths from cancer, improvements in quality of life of cancer patients and to increase cancer survival rates.

To reach these targets, they are focused on the following measures:
Target 1: Strengthen health systems for effective cancer control
Target 2: Measure cancer burden and impact of cancer plans in all countries
Target 3: Reduce exposure to cancer risk factors
Target 4: Universal coverage of HPV and HBV vaccination
Target 5: Reduce stigma and dispel myths about cancer
Target 6: Universal access to screening and early detection for cancer
Target 7: Improve access to services across the cancer care continuum
Target 8: Universal availability of pain control and distress management
Target 9: Improve education and training of healthcare professionals
