Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends was founded in 1986, in the divided capital of Cyprus, Nicosia. Until 1986 diagnosis was made and treatment was provided under difficult conditions. The public was not adequately informed about matters relating to the prevention of cancer. Fear and prejudice prevailed. Cancer meant pain, death. No psychological support was offered to cancer patients. The Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends has successfully completed twenty seven years of struggle against cancer, a woman's initiative that grew and flourished to become a whole organisation of hope; the only association ever founded by cancer patients in Cyprus. Cyprus Association enlightens the public with the correct information on matters of prevention and early detection. They promote continuous awareness, education and training of medical, paramedical and nursing staff on new developments of cancer diagnosis and treatment. PASYKAF has 5 offices in all major towns, and multidisciplinary mobile teams of more than 55 health professionals including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists and social workers, that cover more than 200 towns and villages around Cyprus and offer free services to more than 5000 patients and members of their family. These include: Home Care Nursing / Palliative Care Services Physiotherapy & Lymphoedema Service Psychosocial Support Day Care Centers Free Transport Service Since 1993 Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients & Friends has been full UICC member.
