Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) recently participated in Experience Exchange Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) conference organised by Roche in Morocco for patient organisations.

Dr Muhannad Adnan, a consultant at QCS presented a paper at the conference highlighting the society’s role in raising awareness of cancer and its mission and vision. He noted that in addition to supporting patients and their families, it requires the collective knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the goals of creating a generation that doesn’t fear from cancer. He also highlighted QCS experience in collaborating and building networks such as the establishment of Ooredoo Cancer Awareness Centre with the support of Ooredoo Telecom Company.

The paper pointed out QCS experience in organising international conferences such as breast cancer conference to stay abreast of the latest developments in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer. QCS has also launched a survivor booklet under the name “Story of Hope” which aims to highlight the role of cancer survivors in raising awareness about cancer and let people know it is a treatable disease if discovered in the early stages, Dr Muhannad said.
