Cancer being the Second leading cause of death globally has no antecedents for it eradication/ control other than generating awareness amongst each and everyone and in all and sundry since no prophylactic measures are available for its control. This stupendous task has been undertaken by Cancer Aid Society through its sharply defined objectives.  We are also establishing a Day Care Centre for Cancer Patients at Lucknow in an area of 45 thousand square feet the first one in the most populous State of the Country i.e. UP having 3% of Global Population so as to address the needs for Palliative Care.

Sponsored Cancer Awareness Programs on Primary and Secondary Prevention against Cancer are organized by our Social Workers every year in thousands of Institutions throughout the Country  in the States of U.P., Uttaranchal, M.P., Delhi, H.P., Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Chattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Tripura, Mizoram, Andaman & Nicobar, Goa and Dieu covering lakhs of students and through them amongst millions of people. Students are taught about addictions to drugs, alcohol, smoking or chewing tobacco, chewing pan masala, carcinogens, good dietary habits, healthy living habits, good genital and personal hygiene along with the early symptoms of Cancer when it is curable if treated (currently 80% patients reach the doctors in the incurable stages where we lose precious human lives and resources).  Through the students  awareness was generated amongst their parents and neighbors through pamphlets and one to one contact, thus generating a high level awareness amongst the large section of population on the control of non communicable diseases (Heart Attacks, Respiratory and Diabetics) and specifically against Cancer which  is the Second leading cause of Death World Wide.

This being our Primary activity in fight against Cancer through which the funds are also mobilized by way of voluntary donations accepted in small denominations during the Cancer Awareness Campaigns. This activity is well in tune with the guidelines of the National Cancer Control Programme of the Govt. of India 1985 and also  National Cancer Control Programmes of the  World Health Organisation 1995. These Programs are termed as Sponsored Cancer Awareness Programs and are highly systematic and transparent, which is evident from the fact that we have obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification. These meticulously designed programs have supporting documents at each step of its implementation followed by through regular feedback from Principals, so as to improve the Program continuously. Entire system and process is being annually audited by the ISO Auditors.
