Summary

Binaytara Foundation has partnered with the Cancer Care Nepal to develop a screening program for low and middle income women between the ages of 30-60 who live in the rural and suburban areas of Kathmandu and Lalitpur Districts, Nepal. The Cervical cancer screening program will be conducted over a six month period and the participants will be followed up for medical care based on their screening results.

Challenge

Poverty, gender inequality, lack of education and health services are just a few reasons why very few women have been screened in Nepal. Too often, cancer victims present at a far advanced stage, when it's too late to save their lives. This problem is compounded by geographical isolation in rural areas.

Solution

In screening camps, results and necessary medications are provided on the spot, and screen-positive patients are referred for follow-up at no cost.

Long-Term Impact

We have the chance to save 1000 women's lives. Their families will be more aware of cancer and local health professionals better trained to prevent it, thereby reducing the local burden of cancer and promoting gender equality in health services
