Did you know?

Here are some examples of health inequalities in cancer care. They are unfair and we need to change this. Let's join together to find out how.

  • People who live in poorer areas are more likely to get cancer and more often it will be diagnosed at an advanced stage

  • People from ethnic minority backgrounds report poorer experiences of cancer care and have lower survival rates for certain types of cancer

  • Homeless people have high rates of cancer risk factors, later stage diagnoses and increased cancer death.

  • The number of men getting cancer is rising and they have a higher likelihood of dying from cancer. Black men are more likely to get cancer at a younger age.
