This March marks European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, focusing on raising awareness of the importance of prevention and early diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC).

We are supporting the month by launching a new animated video titled ‘Face Up To Colorectal Cancer’, used to educate policymakers, healthcare professionals and members of the public on the importance of reducing CRC incidence and mortality rates through the participation of cost-effective screening.

The animation also highlights the key CRC symptoms and risk factors to aid early detection of Europe’s second biggest cancer killer.

Throughout the month, we will be posting CRC-related resources and information on social media and encourages members to share these posts to help raise vital awareness of CRC. Find out more by visiting @my_UEG or searching #FaceUp2CRC on Twitter.

Translated versions of the video are available in; Albanian, Czech, Dutch, Estonian, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Serbian, Slovakian and Spanish.
