In 2022, over 14,61,000 new cancer cases were reported in India and over 8,08,000 people died due to the disease. According to the World Health Organisation, between 30% – 50% of cancer deaths could be prevented by modifying or avoiding key risk factors, and implementing existing evidence-based prevention strategies.
We believe that the key to saving more lives from cancer lies in educating people about cancer prevention techniques, the importance of getting screened regularly for cancer and the signs & symptoms of cancer. Moreover, in the social and cultural context of India, it is also important to demystify and destigmatise it, through long-term awareness programs.
We focus on spreading cancer awareness to multiple stakeholder groups through online & offline mediums which include:
Sensitization on different kinds of cancer and all relevant information.
Generating evidence through robust studies and ground implementation for advocacy around cancer.
Awareness session before conducting a screening camp for holistic cancer control solution.
Building a community of well informed individuals.
People screened for different
types of cancer
Students sensitized in anti-
