Theme: Cancer Prevention

The competition aims at raising public awareness on the importance of prevention and screening of cancer through digital games. Cancer has been a major cause of illness and death in Hong Kong yet there are ways to prevent this disease such as tobacco control, healthy diet, physical activity, reduce alcohol, weight management, screening and early detection. Games will be designed to promote these different preventive measures. We hope the participants of the competition and general public can learn more about ways to prevent cancer in an interactive and enjoyable way.

Participants can visit Department of Health’s website and Healthy League Facebook page for more information on cancer prevention.
