Together we can reduce the cancer burden in the Americas.
The global cancer community commemorates World Cancer Day, on February 4, with the slogan "We can. I can". PAHO joins this effort to promote how everyone, together or individually, can help reduce the global burden of cancer, focusing on prevention by reducing risk factors, and control, by improving access to early diagnosis and adequate treatement.
The World Cancer Day 2018 campaign calls for joint efforts between governments, nongovernmental organizations and civil society organizations to promote action and investments in areas including tobacco control, promotion of healthy lifestyles, cancer screening and early detection, and improved cancer treatment services, as well as palliative care.
