The program aims to spread cancer awareness and educate women from underserved areas about the importance of early detection of most common cancers in women like breast cancer, cervical cancer and oral cancer. The awareness sessions not only help women gain knowledge about the common cancers in women but also motivate and empower them to make informed choices about their health.
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 clinical Breast Examination.
