Dia Mundial do Câncer 2020: Pesquisa internacional revela inaceitável desigualdade no nível de conhecimento de câncer

Terça-feira, 4 de fevereiro — Hoje, o Dia Mundial do Câncer, conduzido pela União Internacional para Controle do Câncer (UICC), tem como objetivo mobilizar ações urgentes por parte de indivíduos, governos e da comunidade global contra o câncer, a fim de diminuir disparidades nítidas e inaceitáveis em termos de conhecimento dos riscos de câncer e do comportamento de saúde preventiva entre grupos socioeconômicos altos e baixos.

Para marcar o 20º aniversário do Dia Mundial do Câncer, a UICC encomendou uma pesquisa global para pintar um quadro atualizado das experiências, pontos de vistas e comportamentos públicos relacionados ao câncer. Conduzida pela Ipsos, a pesquisa inclui mais de 15 mil adultos de 20 países e é a primeira pesquisa pública a ser realizada em diversos países sobre as percepções do câncer em uma década. Os resultados da pesquisa, detalhados no relatório da UICC divulgado hoje, International Public Opinion Survey on Cancer 2020: What people feel, think and believe about cancer today, (em inglês), indicam uma nítida divisão entre grupos socioeconômicos altos e baixos no que tange ao conhecimento e a consciência dos riscos de câncer e, por consequência, na adoção de comportamentos para limitar esses riscos.

World Cancer Day – understanding how antibiotic resistance threatens cancer treatment

 On World Cancer Day:  ReAct highlights why effective antibiotics are essential for modern cancer care Patients with cancer rely on effective antibiotics as they undergo cancer treatment. Infections are one of the most common complications cancer patients experience, and it is not uncommon that multiple courses of antibiotics are needed while cancer treatment is ongoing. Antibiotics are also used preventively to avoid infections after surgeries and when patients’ immune systems are weak; for example when undergoing chemotherapy. As such, effective antibiotics are a cornerstone of modern cancer care.
