The World Bladder Cancer Awareness Month 2021 Digital World Tour is an opportunity for everyone to become more #BladderCancerAware.

Every day in May, we highlight the impact of bladder cancer in a different country, whilst shining the light on incredible organisations working to support people affected by bladder cancer. Follow our journey across social media and come back here to learn about more countries as we share more facts & figures throughout the month.

Bladder cancer is the 10th most diagnosed cancer globally, yet, awareness remains low. The support networks, such as bladder cancer patient support and advocacy organisations, are still lacking in most countries. Bladder cancer data is essential to better understand the disease and its impact on lives across the world.

Explore the data above or download the Bladder Cancer Awareness Month campaign toolkit. You can help us raise awareness in your community by starting a conversation with one question – “Have you ever heard about bladder cancer?”
