This year’s world cancer day looks to reduce stigma and dispel the misconceptions about cancer, under the tagline “debunk the myths”.

The focus of the day will be to encourage people to talk about cancer, to get people to look out for early signs and symptoms, to promote a healthy lifestyle and to raise awareness that everyone should have the right to adequate cancer care and treatment.
