Healthy Teens School Program (HTSP)

​Instill healthy lifestyle habits early

With this in mind, the PNG Cancer Foundation has been engaging with schools to roll out its Healthy Teens School Program (HTSP).

Partnering with ExxonMobil PNG, PNGCF today delivered the first of this program to Lealea Primary School, Central Province.

The program was launched to drive awareness on cancer to students in schools, targeting grades six to eight.

Thanking ExxonMobil for joining the fight against cancer, PNGCF CEO Dadi Toka Jnr said the sponsorship will go a long way in reducing the threat of cancer through this program.

Marianville students encouraged

60 students from Marianville were present at the Healthy Teens School Program (HTSP) and the Cancer Education & Awareness Workshop (CEAW) at the Taurama Aquatic Centre on Friday, 18th August.

Papua New Guinea Cancer Foundation (PNGCF) Health Educator, Jacob Oburi, conducted the Healthy Teens School Program in the first session, educating them on how to reduce the risk of developing cancer.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 30 percent of cancer cases are preventable,” Oburi said.
