Women’s Cancer Screening and Care
To conduct specialized in-house and out-reach programs for prevention & early detection of cancer in women from rural and slum areas.
Preventive Cancer Screening and Care
A recent study suggests that the number of Breast Cancer cases can go as high as 17,97,900 in 2020 in India. The occurrence of breast and cervical cancer is growing globally. Although, early diagnosis improves the chances of survival tremendously. However, in India, 1 in every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer dies as compared to 1 in 5 in North America. The awareness about cancer is negligible amongst Indian Women. Through this programme, Samavedana aims at creating awareness about cancer amongst women, screening them and helping them through confirmed diagnosis and treatment if needed.
