The Department of Health (DOH), in a public-private partnership with MSD Philippines and medical societies, is now on its sixth year of raising awareness and providing free cervical cancer screening programs nationwide. For the sixth run of its Cervical Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) activities this May, both the DOH and MSD are going beyond just screening. This year, the awareness is going full circle — from prevention to treatment.

Free cervical cancer screening will be offered to women aged 30-49 years old in 58 DOH-retained hospitals nationwide for the whole month of May.

One for the Record: Anne Curtis and 1,000 plus Doctors Danced for 12 Pinays

 

Manila Philippines, November 8, 2012 – Almost 1,146 doctors set new Guinness World Records for the First Large Number of Dancing Doctors to Fight A Disease. No these doctors don’t mean to outrun and outwit the dancing inmates of Cebu, the dance campaign aims to raise health awareness for women’s dreaded disease – the cervical cancer. Over 7,000 new cases are reported annually, with an average of 12 Filipino women who are about to die tomorrow because of a fatal but highly preventable disease. Cervical cancer prevention is timely needed because all women are at risk — all women regardless of age, lifestyle or economic status. Vaccination alongside screening is a woman’s best defense against the killer cancer.
