March for mothers

  • Print

A month-long program began yesterday to create awareness among mothers about cervical cancer. As part of the program, the 'March for Mother' with the theme 'Big NO to Early Marriage' was brought out from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University and ended at Farmgate. From the procession, awareness leaflets on cervical cancer were distributed.

Dr Md Habibullah Talukder Ruskin, Chief Coordinator, March for Mother and Head of Cancer Epidemiology at National Institute of Cancer Research and Hospital led the march. "Many women of our country feel shy to talk about their health problems especially regarding breast and cervical issues. But it is not a matter of shame. Patients and their family member should come forward without feeling shy," said Raskin.

A total of eight organizations arranged the program with the assistance of Rotary Club International District (3281). A study, conducted by International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), shows that one woman is being affected by cervical cancer in every five cancer patients in Bangladesh. Around 12,000 women are affected by cervical cancer every year.
