GROUP EVENTS

The group is active in promoting awareness about matters relating to prostate cancer. It does that through organising and participating in events of these types:

  • Regular monthly meetings, at many of which we have presentations from experts in their field.
  • Awareness-raising and provision of information through the operation of information stalls at various community events.
  • Giving presentations to groups.
  • Participating at forums, meetings and conferences.
  • Advocating on behalf of men and their families.
