Stigmas, cultural taboos, lack of information and awareness about the disease, poor health seeking behaviours, lack of screening facilities contribute to the cancer burden in India.
Our cancer awareness programmes aid at creating a change in health seeking behaviours by empowering men and women in all cancer related issues.
Within our awareness programs, we also conduct training programs.
The Objective of the project is to train Community health workers in breast health and clinical breast examinations in the community.
