The Anambra AHCSC is being staged in conjunction with the State’s Post Primary Schools Service Commission (PPSSC). The competition is designed to enhance engagements with the OCI Foundation’s “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 zonal rounds for this Second Edition started on October 11th with the Awka Zone and was originally scheduled to end on October 27, 2022. Due to delays orchestrated by the recent flooding in parts of Nigeria, it is now expected to end with the Otuocha Zone on November 17, 2022.
As stated, the Grand Finale will hold on February the 4th, 2023 in Awka, the capital city of Anambra State, Nigeria. February 4th of every year is “Global World Cancer Day”, and the AHCSC Finals and Award Ceremony are designed to coincide with that date on a yearly basis.
