Close the Care Gap
Close the care gap ICON 

World Cancer Day 2022 - 2024 embraces a new 3-year phase, with the theme ‘Close the Care Gap’.

It is all about understanding and recognising the inequities in cancer care. Let’s have an open mind in looking at the hard facts and challenging assumptions.

In Singapore, some people don’t or are unable to go for cancer screening. Some cancer patients don’t even have access to the necessary medical care and services, while others may face challenges in finding or sustaining re-employment due to various issues.

In the 2nd year of #CloseTheCareGap, join us in creating awareness and pledge your support to close the gaps in cancer care! 



What else can you do this World Cancer Day?

What Are The Care Gaps?

 

Do you know these gaps exist in cancer care?

1. Preventive Care
Some people don’t go or unable to go for screening, due to various barriers.

2. Care in Workplace
Cancer patients are unable to work due to barriers like discrimination in the workplace.

3. Access to Cancer Care Services
Patients facing financial barrriers don’t have access to the necessary medical care and services (e.g Rehabilitation, Welfare, Support Groups & Programmes,  Hospice Care).

4. Continuum of Care
Lack of awareness of available cancer support services, (e.g Rehabilitation, Welfare, Support Groups & Programmes,  Hospice Care)
