KENCO has been implementing a cancer amongst older populations advocacy project supported by Sanofi through Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) that hopes to highlight issues facing older people with cancer as well as building the capacity of health workers to be more responsive to the needs of older people with cancer. In the current quarter, KENCO plans to train 60 older people with cancer to be able to highlight issues faced by their peers. KENCO will also work with the trained older cancer advocates to highlight the issues they face through various platforms including social and mainstream media.
