Toklezea Program is a program designed and organised by Cancer Awareness Centre of Kenya to create awareness and mobilise people to go for Cancer screening and know their status early. We advocate for early detection as the best protection. It started in 2017 and so far we have been able to mobilize about 10,000 people. This exercise is a 3 year program period where we want to create awareness and screen about 100,000 people in the country.
