Brunei committed to closing cancer care gap

According to estimates from the Brunei Darussalam Cancer Registry, the risk for a man to develop cancer is 27 per cent (one in four men), while for their female counterpart, the risk is at 29 per cent (one in three women). Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar highlighted this in a message released in conjunction with World Cancer Day 2022, which falls today. This year, it carries the theme ‘Close the Care Gap’.
