Today is World Cancer Day. It is observed on the 4th of February every year to create awareness about cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally.

World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that cancer cases will rise by 81 percent in low and middle-income countries by 2040 because of a lack of investment in prevention and care. It said, these countries have focused their limited resources on combating infectious diseases and improving maternal and child health instead of fighting cancer.

WHO said, they often had the highest cancer mortality too.
