“Cancer Policies in Turkey and in the World in the scope of 2023 Policies of Turkey,

Fighting Lung Cancers, Alcohol-Smoking and Skin Cancers”


The agenda of the International “A Growing Plant” Oncology Days, where priorities in the fight against cancer are discussed and which creates a platform for sharing information and experience at the international level, was determined together with our stakeholders and youth, as in previous years. In the workshops held with the participation of scientists, public institutions, non-governmental organizations, international organizations and young people, we discussed “Cancer Policies in Turkey and in the World in the scope of 2023 Policies of Turkey, Lung Cancers, Combating Alcohol and Cigarettes” in the 7th Oncology Days.

Cancer is a very important health problem that threatens the future of humanity and must remain on the agenda. Since habits and lifestyle are shaped at very early ages, cancer education should also be started at an early age and young people should be well informed that healthy life is closely related to habits acquired during youth. Informing young individuals and their families about environmental factors that cause cancer can reduce the rate of cancer diagnosis and reduce environmental factors. can supply. Learning about the connection between “Tobacco and Cancer” by the whole society, especially the youth, contributes to the reduction of possible cancer diagnosis.

This year’s theme of our event, which we will organize in order to keep the cancer disease threatening the future of humanity on the agenda and to follow the developments, is “Cancer Policies in Turkey and the World in 2023 Policies, Combating Lung Cancers, Alcohol and Smoking”, participating in the 6th International Oncology Days program. Its people have been determined by consensus by representatives of Public Institutions, Non-Governmental Organizations, National and International Organizations, Youth Centers and young people.
