Cancer became the number one cause of the mortality since 2011 at global level. The implementation of strategies for prevention, early detection and treatment could save 4 million premature deaths each year. UICC released the first version of World Cancer Declaration in 2008 and revised the WCD in 2013. The World Cancer Declaration calls upon Government Leaders and health policy makers to significantly reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity, and integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda. Building on the Global NCD Action Plan (2013-2020) agreed by Member States at the World Health Assembly in May 2013, the global cancer community has identified a set of immediate actions for all stakeholders, in particular governments, to advance progress towards the 9 World Cancer Declaration targets. In September 2015, United Nation's member states agreed on "Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs" for 2030 agenda, this also includes non-communicable diseases. The inclusion of an NCD reduction target in the United Nations' new Sustainable Development Goals opens a new era of international development that the cancer and broader health communities have a unique opportunity to grasp. New estimates by IARC show that the global occurrence of childhood cancer is higher than previously assessed. Worldwide, approximately 215000 cancers per year, in those < 15 years and 85000 cancers, in those aged 15-19 years. Childhood cancer survival rates differ greatly between high-income (80%) and low-income settings (10-20%). Global community is more ready to implement the political decisions than ever, however, it is critical to implement the actions at national and regional level to reduce the inequalities and save millions of lives.
