Cancer is the main cause of death in Hong Kong. Consistent with the global pattern, the number of new cancer cases in HK has been on the rising trend for over 30 years. Being established in 1963, Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society is a non-profit making cancer organization with the longest history in Hong Kong. We aim at providing updated cancer information and pragmatic education programs across the spectrum of Hong Kong communities, from the grass roots of the general public to professionals. Our strong team of professional medical & health experts, passionate cancer survivors and volunteers reach out to the community and has direct contact with the public in various channels such as the following:
