SKN to join the world in observance of World Cancer Day 

“I Am and I Will” 

 

That’s the theme for this year’s observance of World Cancer Day.     

                                                                                                                             

                   

 

The day is observed annually on February 4th, to raise awareness of Cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment.  

 

World Cancer Day is led by the Union for International Cancer Control to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration.  

 

The 2021 theme is an empowering call to action urging for personal commitment and represents the power of individual action taken now to impact the future. 

 

In observance of the day this year, the Health Promotion Unit here on Nevis, would like to engage businesses and institutions in their initiative dubbed “The Cancer Code”.  

 

For more information concerning the Cancer Code initiative, persons are asked to call 469-5521.
