Fujifilm India announced its association with the Indian Cancer Society. Under the association, Fujifilm will conduct 18 medical camps to generate awareness about breast cancer and breast self-examination. Free breast cancer screenings will be organized for women above 40. One of the many objectives of the campaign is to provide practical knowledge and quality screening for women of Delhi and NCR who are residing in slums and cannot afford quality treatment. A Mobile Van facilitating Mammography Screening would be available at the venues where such camps will be conducted.
In India 50-60% of the patients die of breast cancer because of late diagnosis. This clearly proves that an informed individual is the most effective key to cancer control.
Vice Chairperson of the Indian Cancer Society, Jyotsna Govil, said, “With the increasing incidence of cancer cases in women, there is a pressing need to raise awareness about early cancer detection at grass-roots level. Therefore, with this partnership, we aim to strengthen our reach with a shared vision of helping people fight cancer.”
Under the association, three mobile cancer screening camps have been concluded in Delhi where over 180 screenings took place.
