World Cancer Day 2021, Cycle Rally, South Plaza at Parliament House, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

A bicycle rally was jointly organised by Eminence Associates for Social Development in collaboration with Bangladesh Non-Communicable Disease Forum (BNCDF) in front of the National Parliament House to observe the ‘World Cancer Day 2021’ to raise public health awareness about cancer. Worldwide, 15 million people die each year from non-communicable diseases (NCDs). In terms of physical risk, economic impact, and medical expenses, cancer is one of the most harmful of NCDs. At present, about 1.5 million people are suffering from cancer in Bangladesh. Bangladesh Non-Communicable Diseases Forum has been working on non-communicable diseases in Bangladesh since 2009. In its continuation, this cycle rally was organised to create cancer awareness and increase responsiveness in cancer prevention and treatment at the national level.
