On 30th May 2017, the 70th World Health Assembly adopted a draft resolution on cancer prevention and control with 18 sponsors and more than 40 Member States and 11 NGOs speaking in support of the resolution. During its deliberation, there was broad consensus that cancer is a growing public health concern which requires increased attention, prioritization and funding.

International Childhood Cancer Day is held annually on 15 February to raise awareness about childhood cancer and to express support for children and adolescents with cancer, survivors and their families. The Day highlights the need for early identification of cancer, improved access to diagnosis and treatment and universal access to palliative care for all children. Though most cancer in children and adolescents cannot be prevented, cancer in children is generally treatable. Early diagnosis of cancer is important to provide children with the greatest likelihood of successful treatment. Relatively small investments can make a large impact on the life of a child with cancer.

World Cancer Day, organized by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and celebrated each year on 4 February, is an opportunity to rally the international community to end the injustice of preventable suffering from cancer. To reach the Sustainable Development Goal target of reducing premature mortality from noncommunicable diseases including cancer by one-third by 2030, governments, NGOs, and all cancer advocates must be mobilized to collective action.
