In recognition of the fact that the fight against cancer demands a multisectoral approach and of the
important and influential role that religious leaders play in the society, KENCO has been engaging
religious leaders with an aim of involving them more in the fight against cancer. Starting with the
High Level Religious Leaders and moving down to grassroots religious leaders and faith
communities, KENCO hopes to sensitize religious leaders on cancer and to work with them moving
forward in creation of awareness on the disease in order to promote early cancer detection, break
the silence and end stigma and discrimination against cancer patients and survivours; in advocacy for
quality and affordable cancer treatment and care services; and in resource mobilization for cancer
control work. So far, two (2) High Level Religious Leaders meeting has been held and various
planning meetings have been held with Inter Religious Council of Kenya to conceptualize and
design the program.
