English Service: Efforts to Curb Cervical Cancer in Kenya
January is the National Cervical cancer Awareness Month: cervical cancer is the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths among women.
Every day at least 9 women die from cervical cancer yet it is a preventable disease through awareness, vaccination, screening and treatment.
On the Big Conversation Millicent Aroka talked to DR. JOHN MACHARIA from the BLISS HEALTHCARE LIMITED to help give a deeper understanding about cervical cancer.
He talks about the importance of screening, the interventions that exist for women with the condition, how safe and effective the vaccination against cervical cancer is among other issues.
