CANSA Hollard MANVan

The CANSA MANVan, in partnership with Hollard, provides a mobile health clinic that delivers free health checks and cancer awareness sessions directly to communities across South Africa. This is a unique, one of a kind offering targeting men.

The MANVan is a compact mobile clinic which can access remote venues to provide education, awareness and screening offerings to individuals. The programme empowers the man in the street to lower his cancer risk and to support the diagnosed prostate and testicular cancer patients to take control of their own cancer journey.

The MANVan is shared between all regions that participate in the Hollard Daredevil Run.

Contact your local CANSA Care Centre regarding the MANVan’s schedule for your area, or to arrange for screening at the Care Centre.
