Cancer presents a major challenge to countries all around the world. It's an indiscriminate force that impacts people across borders, cultures, and a wide variety of population demographics.
Every year, nearly 8 million people worldwide die from cancer, and unfortunately, the numbers are rising. Many of these deaths could be prevented through increased support and funding for disease awareness, screening, early detection, and improved treatment programs.
This infographic by the American Cancer Society highlights the rising cancer epidemic in both developing and developed nations, and emphasizes the growing need for global support.
As the infographic states, it is important that we take action to raise awareness about cancer, dispel myths and misconceptions, and develop strategies to better address the disease and assist those affected by it.
