Father of cancer victim Rex Iniganda from Okapa in the Eastern Highlands Province said a lot of our women don’t want to get tested as they hide behind cultural ideas and taboos.
Iniganda said because of these cultural taboos they fear going to get checked at medical facilities that are available.
“I encourage women and young girls to please take up the courage to get checked and get treated.
“The earlier detection is made, the better. Prevention is better rather than being afraid to get checked up,” he said.
