Each November, during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, people around the globe unite on World Pancreatic Cancer Day to highlight the need for greater awareness, funding, and research for pancreatic cancer. On World Pancreatic Cancer Day (WPCD) we are asking people to take action to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, the symptoms and risks of this disease and the urgent need for earlier detection.

World Pancreatic Cancer Day took place on November 21, 2019.

Since the creation of World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition (WPCC) and World Pancreatic Cancer Day, Immunovia has been joining all the efforts to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer around the globe. Also this year Immunovia honors World Pancreatic Cancer Day and sponsors different activities in collaboration with regional patient associations in Sweden, USA, UK, Spain and Germany.

Looking back at WPCD 2016-2019

We have brought together the voices of patient associations, patients and Key Opinion Leaders into a movie covering the three latest contributions of Immunovia’s pancreatic cancer awareness initiatives.
