Recent from World Health Organization (WHO):
World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Cervical cancer elimination in Nigeria” – below is their description.
Cervical cancer is curable if diagnosed and treated early. The tragedy is that while this type of cancer is preventable, poor access to prevention, screening and treatment contributes to 90% of deaths. In Nigeria, RAiSE Foundation is working to improve access to cervical cancer screening and prevention. It was established by Dr Amina Abubakar Bello, a gynecologist, obstetrician, and the first lady of Niger State. RAiSE offers financially accessible screenings, and any woman found with cancer or precancerous lesions is given free treatment.
