Closing the Care Gap

This year’s theme is “Close the Care Gap”. It is meant to recognize the power of working together. 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.
This campaign calls on you, whoever and wherever you are, to play your part in creating a cancer-free world.

What will you do to close the gap in cancer care?

Last year was all about understanding and recognizing the inequities in cancer care around the globe. It was to question the status quo and help reduce the stigma; to listen to the perspective of the people living with cancer and their communities.
Building on this, in 2023 the campaign continues with joining with like-minded people because we are stronger when we are united. Our actions can take countless forms: motivating neighbours to provide transport to cancer treatment for a fellow resident or ensuring that healthy and affordable food options are offered at the local school. We’ll mobilize our friends, family, co-workers and communities because we know that together we can achieve almost anything.
