WHAT IS CANCER?
The “2016 – 2018 Cancer Awareness and Prevention Manual for the Republic of Namibia” as presented by the Cancer Association of Namibia through the guidance of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) falls under the World Cancer Prevention Campaign of the UICC. The aim is to put cancer on the global agenda and to scale up awareness of the fight against cancer, which in many counties, still takes a back seat to other public health priorities.
World Cancer Day on 04 February annually allows the Association the opportunity to raise public awareness through the media on a national level. During 2016 -2018 this will be an ongoing campaign throughout the year with awareness and education sessions in Namibian schools, community halls, the workplace and medical centers – every Namibian must be informed!
