World Cancer Day is observed every year on February 4 as a global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). The theme for the World Cancer Day 2021 is ‘I Am and I Will’. As Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, this year is yet another reminder of the enduring power of cooperation and collective action.
Hence, Our Gyenkhu is to take responsibility and actively engage in cancer prevention activities at the individual level, and in our own families and our communities. We must remember that prevention is always the best and cancer is preventable with healthy changes in our lifestyle and behavior.
