The Partnership marks World Cancer Day 2015
The Partnership marks World Cancer Day 2015 On February 4, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer celebrated World Cancer Day and shared poll results showing that a national cancer strategy is a priority for Canadians. The national poll, commissioned by the Partnership, showed 94 per cent of respondents support a national strategy to reduce the burden of cancer. Find out more here.

In addition to releasing the poll results, the Partnership convened experts from across the country to explore innovations in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and person-centred care. Health Minister Rona Ambrose (pictured second from right) attended the event and spoke about the value of investing in health research and innovation. Visit blog.cancerview.ca to watch video interviews and highlights from the event.

World Cancer Day is an annual event that unites cancer stakeholders from around the world to raise awareness of cancer globally. It is coordinated by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and is supported internationally by the world’s major cancer societies, ministries of health, research institutes, treatment centres and patient groups, including the Partnership.
