Cancer Factsheets

Cancer Awareness Factsheets are evidence-based information sheets, developed by the Cancer Communication Working Group, in order to ensure that a unified common literature exists for all stakeholders and ensure alignment in the cancer awareness messaging in Qatar.

The efforts of the partners tasked with the responsibility of developing the factsheets is to promote alignment of appropriate and consistent messaging for cancer awareness, communication and education within Qatar, and support the improvement of the health literacy of the population.

  • Signs and Symptoms of the cancer
  • Risk factors
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Prevention and take-home messages
