Let’s eradicate colorectal cancer

News

Get screened and get your loved ones screened

Colorectal cancer kills 5 people in Switzerland every day.

This cancer can be prevented and cured in nearly all cases with early detection and regular screening from the age of 50.

At the moment, only 30% of men and women over the age of 50 are screened.

This rate is much lower than in neighbouring countries.

By tirelessly encouraging everyone to get screened and to get their loved ones screened, we believe it is possible to prevent these deaths from colorectal cancer.

By adopting and encouraging others to adopt a more positive attitude towards screening, we could make Switzerland the first country to eradicate deaths from colorectal cancer.

Let’s move more! Let’s eat healthily! And let’s get screened!

Together, let’s win the Colorectal Challenge.
