WorldConnex takes part in the World Cancer Day with the launch of two important projects.
Why World Cancer Day is important?
This year alone, nearly 8 million people will die of cancer, and left unchecked, the number of deaths will increase to 13.2 million per year by 2030. There is an urgent need for action to raise awareness of the disease and to develop practical strategies to reduce the burden of cancer.
With the recent adoption of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), global health is entering a new era. Today, more than ever, a global commitment is needed to advance progress in the fight against cancer and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
World Cancer Day is the perfect opportunity to spread the word and create a global awareness of the disease in international media and global health and development programmes.
How does WorldConnex contribute to the cause?
At World Cancer Day 2018, WorldConnex participates with two important projects, made possible by WaidX®, the telematic platform destined to define new scenarios for telemedicine. In both cases, the main objective is to provide access to medical care and channels that allow the exchange of know-how between doctors and health personnel in real time.
