Cervical screening and cancer awareness programs

Program Details

Cancer is a very dangerous non-communicable disease. Most of the people of Bangladesh live in fear due to this non-communicable disease. About 12% of women in Bangladesh are affected by uterine cancer and 13% of women are affected by breast cancer. Cervical cancer is more common in women between the ages of 15 and 44. Most of the people of Bangladesh think that it is not possible to eliminate cancer disease 100%. But if there is awareness and timely screening among the people at the initial stage, it is possible to eliminate 100% of uterine and breast cancer. Bangladesh government has taken various steps to increase this awareness. Along with the government of Bangladesh, Professor Dr. Ghulam Abu Zakaria founded Alo Bhubon Trust in 2019 with his 50 years of research and experience to prevent cancer. Alo Bhubon Trust works on three pillars – health, education and renewable energy. To keep people free from cancer, Alo Bhubon Trust has organized a cancer awareness and screening program on the occasion of the 78th birthday of Shaheed Arju Moni, wife of Shaheed Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni and birthday of Father of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Councilor Office of Ward No. 3, Mirpur 10 on March 15 and 17, 2024.
