Organised as a response to increased public concern regarding the level of access to cancer treatment, this workshop will compliment ongoing efforts to strengthen engagement and harness existing efforts to improve access to quality cancer care services through increased awareness and knowledge, informed recommendations, support of multi-sectoral stakeholders and direct advocacy to policy makers.
Workshop participants are expected to obtain:
- An update into the process and challenges faced at the government policy level in increasing access to cancer care services
- An increased awareness of the advocacy possibilities and policy opportunities in the post GE14 environment
- Core skills for developing and implementing advocacy strategies
- Basic skills to work with and harness traditional and non-traditional media platforms for cancer advocacy work
