Prepare for World CML Day 2015

22nd of September is World CML Day. This year's motto is today, together and the entire CML community comes together to raise awareness on CML and the needs of patients around the world. Join us recognising World CML Day on 9/22! 

We celebrate the breakthroughs in treatment and management and also acknowledge what still needs to be done to make the best possible care available in all parts of the world. This is why we also reaffirm our efforts today to improve the outcomes for CML patients wherever they live, by supporting CML education, local access to diagnostics and best possible treatment through the iCMLf programs.

World CML Day ‘toolkit’ available on

On World CML Day hematologists and patient organisations worldwide are carrying out varying activities to raise awareness on CML. These include patient meetings, CML conferences, the launch of a CML magazine, various social media activitities and a bowling tournament. 
If you plan activities in your clinic, team or group we would like to draw your attention to a ‘toolkit’ for your use provided by the CML Advocates Network, a global non-profit community run by patients in over 80 countries. The World CML Day toolkit includes posters and flyers tailored to health care professionals, a photo-database, a press release and communication guidelines. In the photo-database you will find African-specific, Asian-specific and Ibero-American-specific pictures – suitable to your region.

Now join us in preparing for World CML Day on 9/22!
