World Cancer day

Today, the 4th of February, is the World Cancer Day! The purpose of the World Cancer Day is to increase knowledge about the situation of cancer patients and their relatives and seek to improve it. It is a global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).

“By raising worldwide awareness, improving education and catalysing personal, collective and government action, we are all working together to reimagine a world where millions of preventable cancer deaths are saved and access to life-saving cancer treatment and care is equitable for all – no matter who you are or where you live. The theme for 2022-2024 is ‘Closing the care gap’ and everyone is encouraged to get in contact with their governments and call for action. Everyone deserves access to cancer care. Who you are and where you live should not determine if you live”.

Oxcia strongly support these messages and take these into consideration in our drug development. The ambition is to develop effective treatments that are as easy as possible to undergo and administer and which should be accessible to as many patients as possible.
