World Cancer Day

United Action Against Cancer, a pan-European movement from grassroots to government

4 February 2021

On 4 February 2021, World Cancer Day, WHO/Europe will call for a pan-European movement, United Action Against Cancer, with a vision to eliminate cancer as a life threatening disease. The movement will call for action at many levels – from the grassroots to governments – to contribute actively to eliminating the threat of cancer. The movement will build on a set of signature solutions – cost-effective, evidence-based policies and measures which aim to maximize impact at country level. These signature solutions will be introduced at the event.

The event will also introduce the WHO/Europe ambassador for cancer, who will help to promote the movement in the Region.

High-level policy-makers from Member States, technical experts, non-state actors, and a WHO Secretariat team from global, regional and country levels are invited to participate in this online event. The working language will be English, with simultaneous interpretation into Russian.
