04 February 2017 Current Affairs: World Cancer Day (WCD) 2017 was observed across the world on 4 February 2017. The theme for the World Cancer Day 2016-2018 is ‘We can. I can.’
The theme throws light on how everyone, as a collective or as individuals, can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.
It also aims at saving millions of preventable deaths each year. Currently, 8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years).
World Cancer Day : World Cancer Day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), which is a leading international non-governmental organisation.
It was found to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration written in 2008.
The primary goal of the day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020. It also aims at raising awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment.
Multiple initiatives run on World Cancer Day to show support for those affected by cancer.
