The theme for World Cancer Day 2022-2024 on 4 February is ‘Close the Care Gap’
World Cancer Day is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the largest and oldest international cancer organisation dedicated to taking the lead in convening, capacity building and advocacy initiatives.
“We know that every single one of us has the ability to make a difference, large or small, and that together we can make real progress in reducing the global impact of cancer,” the UICC says.
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death for people in Gippsland and is a Gippsland PHN priority health issue. https://gphn.org.au/what-we-do/health-planning/population-health/our-priorities/

This 4 February, the UICC calls on you, whoever and wherever you are, to play your part in creating a cancer-free world.
