Cancer Prevention and Detection in Women

Donation protected
With a global vision to reduce disparities and improve community health, YouthTogether successfully launched its first cervical cancer vaccination camp in July 2023. Building on the success, we plan to conduct another vaccination camp in December 2023 as well as breast cancer screening camp with a common goal of targeting two common cancers in women in India- Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women in India. Screening mammograms can detect breast cancer, allowing it to be diagnosed at an earlier stage and treat the before it spreads. We aim to provide women access to breast cancer screening via free screening mammography. The first camp for Breast Cancer Screening will be held in Bathinda, Punjab in 2023 on Nov 23rd and Nov 24th.

Cervical cancer (HPV) vaccination is highly effective in preventing cervical cancer and is routinely given to children in the US. However, in countries with limited resources like India, many young girls do not get HPV vaccine, the barriers being lack of awareness and high cost. We successfully conducted the first camp in Bathinda earlier this year, in which we vaccinated 204 kids. We are organizing our second vaccination camp on Dec 19th and Dec 20th to help young children and would appreciate your support.
