Thank you again to all our very generous supporters. We have been so grateful to receive your donations to be able to continue to screen women in Nepal for breast and cervical cancer. In April this year we were able to screen a further 43 women bringing our overall total to 1055 women. 

The joint program was organised by Satya Sai Hospital in conjunction with the Nepal Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (NNCTR) and was very fruitful in providing an important service to the community.

Almost 100 patients benefited from a general gynaecological and reproductive health check-up and 43 women received cervical cancer screening at this camp.

Results from the screening camp found that 29 women screened had a cervical infection, these women were provided with free medication to treat the infection and 3 women were found to have a prolapsed uterus and were referred to the hospital for further treatment. All other women had a normal result and no pre-cervical cancer abnormalities were found.

Gratitude was expressed by one a gynaecologist from Satya  Sai Hospital who was involved in the camp, Dr Ranju Sharma, Gynaecologist

‘This program has proved to be very useful and has helped women to open up and talk about their reproductive health issue. The camp has generated interest in the community and we now have more women interested in participating in cancer screening in the future.Thanks to NNCTR for helping us make our program successful and we hope to work together in the future’

Thank you from all of us at NNCTR for your generous support – you are helping to save the lives of many women in Nepal.
