This toolkit has been developed to assist community champions and organisations help raise awareness of prostate cancer among African and African-Caribbean men.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Although it affects all men, black men are 2-3 times more likely to develop this cancer than their white counterparts. It’s important to understand the meaning
of prostate cancer and the role of culture in Black (African and African-Caribbean) men’s beliefs about the disease.
