World Cancer Days

The global health community has made great strides towards addressing cancer in the past decade. However, there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that this progress reaches low and lower middle income countries: more than 60% of the world’s total new annual cancer cases occur in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. These regions account for 70% of the world’s cancer deaths.

That is why Sanofi, responsible company, is committed beside more than 20 biopharmaceutical companies in the Access Accelerated Initiative, a coalition for health launched on January 18 during the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland). Its goal is to address the burden of all non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which are responsible for as many as 36 million deaths each year: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, mental health disorders and also cancers.
