YouWeCan’s Swasth Mahila Swasth Goa in partnership with SBI Foundation was initiated with the goal of screening 1 lakh women in Goa for breast cancer, thereby ensuring that 50% of the age-eligible female population in the State is screened.
We are happy to share that through this initiative — 10,000 women in Goa have been screened for Breast Cancer. “Now that the project has picked up momentum, we aim to achieve our target of screening 1 lakh women across the State in the next 18 months,” says Yuvraj Singh. We are excited to move forward with this initiative, and create maximum impact!
“Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer in India but around 70% of the breast cancer patients in our country get diagnosed in advanced stages due to lack of screening. Our endeavour through the ‘Swasth Mahila Swasth Goa’ initiative is to provide a screening platform to the entire female population of Goa for early detection and timely treatment. I want to thank the SBI Foundation and the Indian Institute of Banking & Finance for their support towards this initiative. I am happy that we have successfully completed 10,000 screenings and that we have helped the women who have tested positive get the required treatment. Now that the project has picked up momentum, we aim to achieve our target of screening 1 lakh women across the State in the next 18 months.”
“SBI Foundation is proud to be funding this unique initiative, Swasth Mahila Swasth Goa, to create awareness on breast cancer, break stigma and mobilise women folk to come forward and take charge of their health and thereby making Goa a model state for breast cancer screening. With the help of technology interventions through iBreast devices, many women suspected with breast cancer have been triaged and are undergoing follow up investigations. Through collaborative efforts of all stakeholders viz. implementation and technological partners, the Government of Goa, healthcare professionals etc., we have reached a milestone of 10,000 screenings -a significant step in reaching the target of screening 1 lakh women across the state.”
