What is the World Cancer Declaration?
And without significant improvements – preventable and curable cancers will continue to kill millions of people worldwide.
The Declaration is a tool to help bring the growing cancer crisis to the attention of government leaders and policymakers in order to significantly reduce the global cancer burden by 2020.
It represents a consensus between government officials, public health experts and cancer advocates from around the world who are committed to eliminating cancer as a life-threatening disease for future generations.
Our goal is to gather 1 million supporters for a Cancer Free World- we will present this support to the world’s leaders at the first UN Summit for Non -Communicable Diseases (NCD’s) in September 2011.
Why is this important?
There has been only one UN General Assembly Special Session focused on health since 1947; the announcement of the 2011 summit is an unprecedented step in the battle against cancer and represents an opportunity to eliminate it as a life-threatening disease for future generations.
