The “Anambra ArOY Health Campaign Schools Challenge, (Anambra AHCSC)” is being staged in conjunction with the Post Primary Schools Service Commission (PPSSC) of Anambra State. The PPSSC has SIX zones in Anambra State, and these include Aguata, Awka, Nnewi, Ogidi, Onitsha, and Otuocha zones. The AHCSC is designed to enhance engagement with the Arm Our Youths (ArOY) Health Campaign, which, in September 2019, introduced anti-breast and anti-cervical cancer teachings into the curriculum of all public senior secondary schools in Anambra State.
The Grande Finale will hold on (or around) February the 4th of every year, which will coincide with the annual commemoration of the Global World Cancer Day. For the Second (2022/2023) Edition, the zonal rounds started on October 11th with the Awka Zone, and will end at the Onitsha Zone on October 27, 2022.
