Shanab is a men’s health initiative that falls under Friends of Cancer Patients’ umbrella “Kashf” for early detection of cancer, addressing prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Launched in November 2014, Shanab; moustache in English, chiefly addresses testicular cancer and prostate cancer. It highlights the importance of early detection and endeavors to eliminate stigmas surrounding both types of cancer.
Shanab seeks to collaborate with various government and private entities including health authorities, corporates, sporting associations and the like, in an attempt to maximise the scope of awareness and promote a culture where health comes before any other considerations.
Shanab aims to:
Raise awareness among the target audience about the major health issues men face
Also encourage men’s to share their health concerns with their peers
Receive general news, updates, and information
