​School girls in NCD learn about cervical cancer

Papua New Guinea Cancer Foundation (PNGCF) continued the 2016 cervical cancer education schools program at KSS this week.

The program focuses on what cervical cancer is, how they can protect themselves from the disease, how to recognise early signs and symptoms and concludes with a question and answer session.

Current statistics show that cancer is one of the main causes of deaths in PNG and cervical cancer is among the most common types.
