DAPU – Two hundred women were screened on Sunday, March 20, 2022 at Leboto Modern Secondary School in Dabou, for cervical cancer.
This activity is an initiative of the Association of Women of Gbogbo 2 (AFUG2), an area of the municipality, which has included it in the health component of its program entitled “Physical well-being of women, for safe development at all levels”.
This campaign, funded by Speak Up Africa through the “Essential Voices” project and the Channel Foundation, was the association’s choice, because according to its president, Toh bi Melia Ernestine, many women unaware of their situation had to go from life to death. Therefore, in order to “educate these women about their situation before it is too late,” she explained.
It also asked the attending authorities to take care of the women declared to be cervical cancer carriers after the examination.
The municipal councilor, Sanogo Aisata, encouraged AFUG2 to carry out this examination which works for the welfare of its members. For her, “monthly contributions, baptisms of children, marriages, bereavement, empowerment cannot be the only reasons for having a women’s association,” because these initiatives are worthless without health.”
So I congratulate the AFUG2 team for this useful initiative.
