The 4th World Head and Neck Cancer Day

27th July 2018


Thank you for your passionate support all these years. You may see the details of various 132 events in 65 countries of 43 countries on Index/Report

Let us make 4th WHNCD on 27th July a resounding success. Due to logistic reasons it is anticipated that some organizers may find it difficult to host the event on Friday, 27th July 2018. In such a situation WHNCD can be commemorated anytime in that week starting 23th July. It is however important to identify any such activity as “In recognition of the WHNCD 2018”.

The WHNCD events can be hosted by government organizations, non-government of organizations, civil societies, medical societies, patient support groups, and medical care facilities, hospitals, medical schools, and cancer centers etc. It is preferable to involve newspaper and television media, NGOs and Government representatives in your programs. These are some of the options that can be taken up as part of your CME –

  1. Educating the physicians on early diagnosis and current treatment paradigms
  2. Awareness programs for the general public
  3. Free screening for Head & Neck cancers
  4. Interaction with cancer survivors and their families
  5. Interaction with government and policy makers.
