Aim: Encourages breast, cervical and oral cancer prevention and early detection for women in under served communities
Data published by the ‘National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research’ – India (NCPR) indicates one woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India and, for every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, one woman dies.
Lack of access to well organized and well-regulated cancer care systems further complicates the situation. Prevention and Detection are two important components in the fight against cancer.
Our program aims to spread cancer awareness and educate people about the importance of early detection. The first part includes Cancer Awareness Talks where women are educated about the importance of Early Detection, and then we follow with Cancer Detection Camps where women are given the opportunity to undertake the following free tests: Ear Nose Throat test (ENT), Pap Smear, and Breast Examination.
