​Free mammography for 2000 women!

Mammography is a low-dose x-ray procedure to see the internal structure of the breast and is commonly used in examination of breast cancer – one of the most common cancer in women.

The free screening will be given to women who are over 30 years of age, have history of breast cancer in the family and have been referred to by any government or private hospital/health centre or an Health Extension Officer.

PIH will also conduct pap smear tests for cervical cancer, to address two types of cancer at one time.

NGBC will be funding this program for K350,000.
