Strengthening the Fight against Cancer & other NCD

by Cancer Aid Society

Summary

Cancer, the second leading cause of death globally; incidence of new cases are expected to rise by about 70% in the next two decades. Isn't the shrieking figure an eye opener yet? The scenario is gloomy as we are fighting a lost battle in the absence of resources at national or international level. Few organizations with scanty resources are involved in prevention and control of Cancer, a disease that has surpassed all man made boundaries.In such scenario contributions from one and all is vital

Challenge

Will and action by an Individual as Social Responsibility - kindles a ray of hope every dawn amidst threat posed by Cancer killing 12% humanity. As such contributions from one and all is vital for its Control by strengthening our hands; needless to mention that your donations shall get recognized; however we feel that it is peanuts in comparison to the spirit and noble gesture of strengthening fight against Cancer & other Non Communicable Diseases which kills 60% humanity every year

Solution

We organize cancer awareness program among the student volunteers on ill effects of tobacco abuse, passive smoking, alcohol, drugs, pollution, junk food, poor personal & genital hygiene etc. They are groomed on healthy diet & lifestyle, regular physical exercise etc. to prevent NCDs such as cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, respiratory ailments etc. Further we improve the quality of life of cancer patients through care beyond cure i.e. palliative care & advocacy which is lacking.

Long-Term Impact

In 2011 Political Declaration was signed by Governments at the High Level Meeting for Prevention and Control of Non Communicable Diseases at UN Headquarters however 2014 Review Meeting showed a gloomy picture with no improvement. As a participant to these meetings and Member of WHOs Global Coordination Mechanism on NCDs Cancer Aid Society with its three decades old model is committed to improve the health of community across India and its global replication aiming to reduce burden of Cancer
