Lung Cancer Awareness Month 2023
Lung Cancer Awareness Month (LCAM) brings together a global coalition of lung cancer advocacy groups with the overarching goal of transforming lung cancer survival rates. LCAM achieves this by fostering conversations and underscoring the importance of early detection, effective treatment, and robust research efforts. Its key objectives include:
- Garnering public backing to enhance research efforts, expand screening initiatives, and improve treatment alternatives for individuals affected by lung cancer.
- Forging global collaborations with patient advocacy groups, healthcare non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and national health ministries.
- Enhancing awareness among healthcare practitioners and the general populace about the profound impact of early detection on increasing survival rates in lung cancer cases.
