The 2018 Impact Report has arrived

This year more than ever, World Cancer Day captured the world’s attention. 

In the final year of the ‘We can. I can.’ campaign, the world came together to inform, educate, raise awareness and inspire action around one of the world’s most deadly diseases. This report takes a look at some of these actions and how the collective efforts this past 4 February made a resounding impact worldwide. 

Take a look at the report to see what other results we achieved together.

Thanks to all World Cancer Day 2018 supporters

This report provides a summary of the impact of World Cancer Day 2018 in broad strokes, as we could not possibly detail the thousands of generous individual and collective efforts that took place this past 4 February. However, every action taken and every message shared by all World Cancer Day supporters not only helped to achieve the impressive numbers, but also gave the campaign a life, energy and momentum of its own. 

Thank you to our official World Cancer Day partners, whose generous financial contribution supports the best work that we do.

World Cancer Day is a campaign built to resonate, inspire change and mobilise action long after the day has passed. Between today and the new campaign in 2019, let’s continue the momentum in reducing the impact that cancer has on ourselves, our communities and the world.
