World Cancer Day 2020

Novartis is supporting World Cancer Day by reimagining cancer in the workplace through a dedicated global program.
Feb 04, 2020

World Cancer Day is an international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death among working-age adults in high-income and middle-income countries.

This World Cancer Day, we’re shining a light on our commitment to our employees impacted by cancer. We are reimagining cancer in the workplace through the global program ‘Ensemble – Caring for colleagues’ with oncology experts and human resources personel, who serve as internal volunteers.


Novartis provides confidential support to associates affected by cancer - as individuals, caregivers or teams. Watch Barbara’s story. #WorldCancerDay #IAmAndIWill
