Wheel Can Cerv in Bangladesh

In January, as we celebrate Inner Wheel Day, it is also the cervical cancer awareness month.

An awareness programme on cervical cancer was initiated by the Inner Wheel Club of Dilkusha at the Dhaka Ahsania Mission, Dhanmondi, Dhaka. It was a joint project with other Clubs, Dhaka Ahsania Mission and Evercare Hospital.

The Inner Wheel Club of Blazing Stars arranged two programmes. First was an awareness campaign to disseminate information regarding screening and prevention of cervical cancer. The awareness seminar was delivered by Professor Dr Mafruha Khanam Porag, Head of O&G at the Bangabandhu Memorial Hospital, Chittagong. Second was an all-expense paid cervical screening for fifty women conducted using the latest available high-performance procedure (AI-assisted VIA-Colposcopy).

The Inner Wheel Club of Dhaka Radiant, along with other clubs, Ahsania Mission Cancer and General Hospital, and Beacon Pharmaceutical, jointly organised an awareness seminar on cervical cancer. Some donations were also given out i.e. a bed, a wheelchair and money for treatment purposes of a poor cancer patient.

The Inner Wheel Club of Comilla held a cervical cancer awareness rally.
