AWACAN is a project to measure cancer awareness among women in Sub-Saharan Africa.


Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in Sub-Saharan Africa and cervical cancer the leading cause of cancer death. We have developed the African Women Awareness of CANcer (AWACAN) tool for measuring awareness of breast and cervical cancer. This has been validated in English, isiXhosa and Acholi and is available for use.
