The Burden of Cancer in Asia
Cancer directly affects almost all people around the world.
1 in 5 men and 1 in 6 women worldwide will develop cancer during their lifetime.
Asia accounts for nearly 50% of new cases and 58.3% of cancer deaths in 2020.
Every day, 15,972 precious lives are killed by this terrible disease in Asia.
However, less than 26% of global funding for cancer technology goes to less developed countries in Asia.
WE MUST DO MORE TO FIGHT CANCER FOR OUR COMMUNITY
We need more funds to defeat cancer. Your support will help us fund the cancer research of tomorrow and make a difference in the lives of Asians battling cancer today.
