We conduct cervical cancer awareness program on January month. This provides awareness regarding the preference of Human Papilloma Virus which causes the cervical cancer. This gives us the way to look ahead for what we can do for minimizing cervical cancer rate. With collaboration with other stakeholders and members, this January awareness program provides the valuable lessons and outcomes.
In part of this we regularly provides the screening camps with collaboration with local organizations.
- Marwari Community
In 2015, cervical cancer screening through VIA method was done for 64 women. The camp was conducted in collaboration with the Agarwal community in their community hall in Kathmandu. All positive women were referred to a collaborating hospital for further treatment.
- Himalayan community
In 2016, NFCC in collaboration with the Walung community conducted a screening camp for women from Himalayan communities at the Walung community center in Boudha, Kathmandu. A total of 85 women were screened and all VIA positive women were referred to a private collaborating hospital for further treatment. All women were followed up by phone to ensure continuity in care and treatment.
