Cancer Research UK brings together leading scientists to call for urgent investment as global cancer cases predicted to rise – Cancer Research UK

Scientists’ Letter to the World

To those with the means and vision to bring about change.

The threat posed by crises such as climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic have required a massive global response. The threat posed by cancer is no different.

Cancer is the defining health issue of our time. Globally, 18 million people are diagnosed with cancer every year. And 10 million die from the disease.

Alarmingly, by 2040 – just 17 years from now – the number of cancer diagnoses is set to increase by over 55%. This represents an untold amount of pain and suffering to families across the world. Your help can change that.

Many cancers can be prevented, and even more could be overcome if detected early and treated effectively.

As leading representatives of the global scientific and research community we know we’re standing at a tipping point of discovery that could transform how we understand and overcome cancer.

Fuelled by advancements in AI and technology – the next decade presents a unique opportunity to beat the disease. That is why we’ve come together to ask you to help accelerate a new golden age of cancer research.
