World Cholangiocarcinoma Day 2022

World Cholangiocarcinoma Day – a day when organisations and individuals from around the globe join together in a nationally neutral way, to collaborate internationally for the world’s cholangiocarcinoma patients.

AMMF first instigated World Cholangiocarcinoma Day as an international venture to raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma, this poorly understood and under researched cancer which, clearly was and is increasing in incidence globally.

AMMF has always believed collaboration is the way forward and, together with six partner charities and organisations* from around the world who united to raise awareness, the inaugural World Cholangiocarcinoma Day was held in 2016.

It has continued each year since then, giving an opportunity for increased numbers of concerned charities, organisations and individuals around the world to unite and raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma – bringing hope to all those diagnosed with this challenging cancer.

The World CCA Day Icon

Initially created for the first World CCA Day, the distinctive icon does not represent any one group or organisation, but is symbolic of all the organisations from around the globe who joined together on that first day in 2016 to work for a better future for all with cholangiocarcinoma.

World CCA Day is now part of the work of the Global CCA Alliance but the icon remains the unique and nationally neutral symbol of the day, used by everyone from around the world who supports the venture, working together towards the shared vision of improving prevention, survival, and the quality of life of CCA patients globally

World Cholangiocarcinoma Day 2022 will be held on 12 February – full information on how to support the Day can be found on the dedicated website – just click here
