Every year on February 4th, World Cancer Day is observed, which was established in 2000 at the first World Summit Against Cancer held in Paris. Signed by heads of state and leading medical centers, the Paris Charter for the Fight Against Cancer brings together scientists, practicing physicians, the public, and government bodies to conquer one of the most dangerous pathologies – cancer.

The main objectives of World Cancer Day are:

- Raising awareness about cancer as one of the most prevalent diseases of modern civilization.

- Drawing society's attention to the importance of prevention, early detection, and treatment of malignant tumors.

- Formulating tasks facing the world in the fight against cancer.

Equal access to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care can save lives every day. By increasing public awareness of cancer detection and treatment, we reduce fears, enhance understanding and motivation, dispel myths and misconceptions, and change attitudes and behaviors towards the disease. Quality of life for cancer patients is a priority in treatment, hence such directions as psychological and physical rehabilitation, as well as reconstructive interventions, are rapidly developing.

Timely diagnosis, achieved through awareness of cancer and the availability of medical assistance, ensures a positive clinical outcome in over a third of cases.

Since 2022, the lives of all Ukrainians have changed. However, the Ukrainian healthcare system remains stable, and doctors continue their daily work in hospitals across the country, including oncologists, who do everything possible to treat patients following to local and international standards. 

Today, all cancer institutions in the country work on a regular schedule, and this is already our joint small Victory.

No matter how difficult it may be for all of us now, let's remain a free country and strive to become a healthy nation.

On World Cancer Day, of the Shupyk National Healthcare University of Ukraine and the Oncology Department remind everyone of the importance of timely diagnosis, despite the difficulties of the time, and call on the population to take care of their health without losing faith in Victory over the enemy and Victory over cancer.
