Put cancer on the curriculum
We are passionate about preventing cancer, and in September 2018 we launched a campaign called 'Put Cancer on the Curriculum' for Gynae Cancer Awareness Month.
As well as raising much-needed awareness of all five gynae cancers across social media, we are also wanting to influence the Government's draft guidelines for Relationships, Sex and Health Education in schools.
Our Put Cancer on the Curriculum campaign calls on the Department for Education to amend their guidance to ensure a cancer education programme is taught in an age-appropriate way, with enhanced body knowledge and awareness included for girls and boys. We also want boys and girls learn about the benefits and purpose of the HPV vaccination programme, as well as the cervical cancer screening programme.
