VCCC MONDAY LUNCH LIVE EVENT

UICC CITY CANCER CHALLENGE

With 1 in 3 people directly affected by the disease, cancer is one of the world’s most pressing health concerns, killing more people than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined each year. Cancer is estimated to cost world economies as much as US$1.16 trillion annually - a figure that is projected to grow exponentially if action is not taken now to reduce the spiralling growth in the number of cases and the impact on both individuals and healthcare budgets.

On World Cancer Day 2017, UICC launched its City Cancer Challenge in collaboration with the World Economic Forum. aimed at establishing a cancer center in every city over 1 million inhabitants.
