World Cancer Day – 4 February 2023

What is World Cancer Day?

World Cancer Day is a global initiative that aims to promote awareness on cancer as a public health issue and to strengthen actions towards improving
knowledge about screening, early detection, treatment and palliative care. This year’s theme is “close the care gap” which is about understanding the
inequities in cancer care and taking actions to make the necessary progress to address them.

As commented by Dr Sonia Auz. “The Speaking Book connected to making Cancer diagnosis less frightening. Being able to listen to children
just like them, and in their own language is a great comfort”, she said.
