CANSA celebrates World Cancer Day 2011 by signing declaration for a cancer-free world
The WCD is an international appeal for public support, which runs til the end of June 2011 and will be used to bring the growing cancer crisis to the attention of government leaders and health policy makers world-wide, in order to significantly reduce the global cancer burden by 2020. Approximately 90% of cancers are caused by environmental and lifestyle related factors and cancer kills more people world-wide than AIDS, Malaria and TB combined.
CANSA launched the campaign for signatures in South Africa, with the signing of the WCD by Sue Janse van Rensburg, CANSA CEO, on World Cancer Day. Add your signature to the World Cancer Declaration and make a difference for the sake of future generations…
