About us

CANCER AWARENESS CENTRE OF KENYA (CACK) is a community based non-profit making organization registered in Kenya. We are located at 3rd Floor, Suite 309,Tumaini House, Moi Avenue, Nairobi, Kenya.


We are among founder and member of the Kenya Network of Cancer Organisations (KENCO) and work with the Ministry of Health on Cancer awareness and advocacy and sreening in the health private sector.

We have been conducting Cancer Awareness campaigns and screening programs to sensitize the community on early Cancer detection strategies and other related terminal diseases as well as preventive care in cancer eradication.


This has been very successful as many people have benefited from these activities through awareness, early detection, diet interventions, physical fitness and healthy lifestyles. Since inception (2011) we have managed to screen over 20,000 people; including males.


Cancer has been identified as a silent killer in our communities especially because of low level of awareness, poor diagnosis and lack of affordable facilities for cancer management. This affects the people and has a negative impact on the workforce thus burdening the business enterprises and government agencies
