World Cancer Day: Close the Care Gap

World Cancer Day is a global initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). They aim to raise awareness, improve education and to catalyse personal, collective and government action. The theme for World Cancer Day is Close the Care Gap and it is a 3-year campaign with 2022 focusing on ‘Realising the problem’ and 2023 focusing on Uniting our voices and Taking Action’. The third year of this Close the Care Gap campaign is ‘Together, we Challenge those in Power’. From an equality, diversity and inclusion perspective, we know that there are still many health inequalities especially with minoritized and under representative groups in society. So, focusing on the theme of uniting our voices and taking action, we first need to know the who’s voices we are taking action for.
