Cancer education at Porebada Primary School

The HTSP is a school-based cancer education and awareness program that focuses on empowering teenagers to make healthy lifestyle choices as a way to reduce their risk of getting cancer in the future.

When asked about the relevance of the HTS Program to students in school, Executive Manager of PNGCF, Priscillar Napoleon, said: “Students have to be empowered with the knowledge to make personal healthy lifestyle choices and the HTS Program encourages students to make positive lifestyle choices before they are influenced by peer pressure”.
