Kuwait Cancer Control Center (KCCC) provides patients and the community with consistent, accurate information and education about different types of cancer and possible treatment modalities involved.
All of us are exposed to considerable risk factors that significantly increase our likelihood of chronic disease, substance abuse, environmental pollution, and developing cancer. The government of the State of Kuwait spends a lot of efforts to decrease these risk factors and subsequently less risk to have a cancer. We believe that providing you with the right information about cancer is a great job. We offer patients and their families with a wide variety of materials for self education. These materials are available for downloading and printing, as well. They are listed based on disease site.
The rates of preventable and detectable cancers are falling for the general population, but for some cancers, minority communities are still suffering at disproportionate rates. We are working to ensure that the data collection efforts include a greater focus on underserved communities and provide them with all needed information.
