Sensitisation campaign in Casablanca to fight cancer

An anti-cancer sensitization campaign was launched on Wednesday in Casablanca

The 30-day campaign aims to sensitize people on the disease and the importance of early screening and appropriate treatment, said the Moroccan first channel "TVM."

The campaign provides a toll-free number to listen to citizens' inquiries about the disease that touches some 40,000 persons in Morocco, including over 1,000 children. The campaign also includes diffusing radio and TV spots.

President of the scientific council Association, Taher Alaoui, told TVM that the campaign aims at raising people's awareness on the disease and the hazards of traditional treatment methods through a call center for persons wishing to contact specialists.
