Nationwide Cancer Awarness Programme (CAP)

Nation-wide Cancer Awareness Programme

The ‘Nationwide Cancer Awareness Programme’ (CAP), jointly launched by Cancer Care India and the National Cadet Corps (NCC – the largest youth organization in the world) on 26th May 2003, from the Army Hospital R&R, Delhi Cantt, has gained considerable momentum. This is being done in a planned and systematic manner, in two phases. Phase one, – workshop on cancer awareness is conducted for NCC boys and girls in the age group of about 15-20 years, by cancer specialists/survivors. Phase two, – trained and motivated NCC cadets spread the messages of cancer awareness amongst the people, in their personal capacity and also as a part of their community development and social service programmes. In this process we hope to gradually cover the whole country. It is a gigantic task but not impossible.

Following messages are spread to the people :

• Cancer is preventable.
• Cancer is curable.
• Cancer is not contagious.
• There is life after cancer.
• Do not get scared of cancer but fight cancer.

As on 22.10.2016, conducted 180 major CAPs in 27 states/ UTs, and 75,664 people including 56,374 NCC cadets, 698BSF personnel, and 18,592 others attended our workshops on cancer awareness.
