AICSO assumed the responsibility of contributing to health in the community, either through the creation of community programs or through education and awareness actions.

Thus, it has been a promoter and partner in several initiatives, which aim to alert the community to issues related to oncological disease, but also to promote healthy lifestyles.

Get to know some of these actions and be aware of our Agenda, so that you can participate in future actions.

Every year on February 4th, World Cancer Day is celebrated. AICSO joins the WorldCancerDay and UICC initiative, which every three years launches a different theme for this campaign.

March is the month dedicated to women survivors of cancer and AICSO could not fail to mark this date. Annually, awareness-raising actions have been carried out during the respective month, which appeal to the adoption of healthy lifestyles and women’s health.

In May we celebrate the month of brain tumors. The international motto for this month is “Go Gray in May”. AICSO is not indifferent to this campaign, developing information, support and awareness actions on the subject.

“Pink October” is celebrated annually around the world, with the aim of raising awareness about Breast Cancer.

As part of the Brain Tumor alert week, AICSO has supported and developed some local initiatives, involving patients, families and professionals, encompassing socializing, information and awareness-raising activities for this problem. She has also been involved in supporting and publicizing the International Brain Tumor Awareness Week campaigns developed by the IBTA.
The European Week of Sport is an initiative of the European Commission, whose main theme is #BeActive. The entity responsible for its organization in Portugal is the IPDJ . This initiative aims to promote sports and physical activity among all citizens. Knowing the benefits of exercise in the general population and in cancer survivors in particular, AICSO, through the ONCOMOVE© program, could not fail to participate.

November is the month dedicated to men’s health, especially the prevention and early diagnosis of Prostate Cancer. Over the years, AICSO has been organizing the Prostate Cancer Walk, to involve and sensitize the community to this problem.


AICSO is a partner of the Caring for Informal Caregivers Movement. You can download the Informal Caregiver Statute here, which legislates the rights and duties of the caregiver and the person cared for.
