Cervical Cancer Screening Camp
For the last 3 years, CORD at Siruvani networked with tertiary Hospital GKNM in Coimbatore, to screen 650 women by HPV self sampling to detect and prevent Cervical Cancer. Of these, women who were found to be HPV positive were referred to GKNM Hospital for further investigations and treatment. GKNM Hospital arranged the necessary funds for the treatment. The screening and treatment were given free of cost. CORD mobilised these women after creating awareness in the Mahila Mandal Meeting.
