Cancer Defence is a Poland-wide informational and educational campaign directed towards young people aged 14-19.
The aim of the campaign is promoting early cancer prevention and raising awareness of factors that directly increase the risk of cancer. The goal is to create two simple associations in the minds of the youth: cancer and defence. Cancer Defence focuses on three types of cancer: lung cancer, cervical cancer, and melanoma.

Among the types of cancer most common among adults, we’ve chosen those which can be caused by behaviours and habits formed during adolescence.
We hope that, by making people realize the importance of adopting a health-oriented lifestyle, particularly of using cancer prevention strategies, we can help decrease the incidence rate of cancer in Poland.
The campaign involves 45-minute classes prepared for students aged 14-19 (from the 2nd grade of secondary school through the 3rd grade of upper-secondary school), during which a film depicting true cancer patient stories will be shown.
