UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has launched a national breast cancer awareness campaign to highlight the importance of early detection of breast cancer and prevention methods. Held under the slogan "Screen and Reassure Us", the campaign was launched in collaboration with the Friends of Cancer Patients (FoCP) represented by the Pink Caravan and MSD International to mark International Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is observed in October, according to the World Health Organization.
As part of the national campaign, a "mammogram" device will be deployed to detect breast cancer in women aged forty and older, particularly those who have not had the test in more than two years. Clinical exams and mammography will be performed as part of the initiative, in accordance with international standards and guidelines and under the supervision of qualified professionals. Additionally, the campaign will foster collaboration and teamwork across all governmental and non-governmental health entities to support MoHAP’s efforts in the fight against breast cancer.
