Laryngeal Cancer Prevention Program
Demystifying and combating smoking are among the PASYKAF’s primary goals. Aiming to prevent and treat laryngeal cancer that is directly linked to smoking, PASYKAF has joined forces with a support group of laryngeal cancer patients.
What actions does PASYKAF take?
In May 2018, at a Press Conference in the Ministry of Health, in Nicosia the Support Group of people who had undergone laryngectomy was announced. This announcement took place in the context of the World No Tobacco Day.
PASYKAF together with the members of the support group, identified the needs of those with laryngeal cancer experience and laryngectomy, and moved on to finding solutions. One of the immediate problems was the access of people who have undergone laryngectomy to essential supplies.
PASYKAF successfully secured their free delivery from the Nicosia General Hospital pharmacy to all patients.
What does PASYKAF offer you?
PASYKAF provides the following services to the public, through organized groups in districts, communities or professional areas free of charge:
- Information material for the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of laryngeal cancer
- Lectures, presentations by Doctors, Psychotherapists and other health professionals
- Information material on the rights of patients and people with laryngeal cancer experience
