KHCF and KHCC Conclude Lung Cancer Awareness Campaign Sponsored by AstraZeneca

Amman, November 30th, 2021 – The King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) and Center (KHCC) concluded their lung cancer awareness campaign under the slogan “Breathe Freely”. The campaign was launched in November, coinciding with lung cancer awareness month. The 30-day campaign was sponsored by its silver sponsor, AstraZeneca.

The campaign was launched through KHCF and KHCC’s social media platforms with posts aiming to spread awareness on lung cancer prevention and the importance of routine early detection examinations. The campaign also focused on the leading causes of lung cancer, including pollution, and passive smoking. A training course on the importance of quitting smoking, organized by KHCC, and attended by the Ministry of Health’s medical staff, was also part of the campaign.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of death for both men and women in Jordan, with people over 45 years old being the most vulnerable.
