Challenge

They have several misconceptions and misunderstand aspects of cancers. Socioeconomic causes, illiteracy factors are playing very dominant role. If screening the disease in early stage is not done, it will continue to go diagnosed and untreated. STEPS NGO will organize cancer awareness, screening and referral services to women.

Solution

Organizing Breast cancer awareness camps and screening camps in back ward areas of srikalahasti town. Providing accurate, accessible, and up-to-date information on breast cancer. Developing an effective awareness and screening campaign for early detection and referring to higher institutions for further treatment to cancer control.
