LAPO Community Campaign for Cancer Control (LAPO-C4)

The LAPO-C4 is an innovative community-based intervention aimed at creating awareness on cancer prevention, early detection and control. The disease has become one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in Nigeria with over 100 persons diagnosed every year out of which about 80% die due to ignorance.

The intervention was openly demanded by female beneficiaries of LAPO.

Project implementation prioritizes prevention and early detection. Key project activities are community-based advocacy; screening and referral linkages with community health facilities.

The Pilot Project began in 2016 with the following  as focal states and territory

  • Federal Capital Territory (Abuja);
  • Lagos;
  • Edo;
  • Rivers and
  • Imo States

The Project is implemented in partnership with community-based organizations and has now been scaled up. Twelve (12) Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) participated in the pilot phase.
