DoH Cancer Prevention and Control Awareness Campaign
As one of the leading causes of death in Abu Dhabi, cancer is a key Public Health issue for DoH. Our objective is to reduce the incidence of cancer, while also improving detection rates and treatments of the disease. To support these aims, we run an annual awareness campaign: Live Healthy & Simply Check.
As cancer is an indiscriminate disease that affects men, women and children of all ages, and presents in many different forms, our campaign spans an extensive six-month period and covers the most prevalent types of cancer in Abu Dhabi, including breast, lung, cervical and colorectal.
The campaign builds from a preventative approach to healthcare, bringing awareness to the importance of regular screening examinations, early detection and healthy lifestyles.
