In a bid to reduce deaths from cervical and breast cancers, Pfizer NEAR partnered with the PEACE Campaign to promote early detection.
PEACE – acronym for Providing Early Attention to Cervical Cancer – was borne out of the need to educate women particularly on the treatable yet dangerous disease.
Dr. Peace Okonkwo, Founder, PEACE Campaign says about 4,500 women have been screened so far. The plan is to screen at least 10,000 women in cervical and breast cancer..
“We are happy to have PEACE Campaign as a partner as we will continue to work together to help raise awareness to contain these devastating and widespread diseases that potentially afflict and terminate the lives of millions of Nigerian women,” said Medical Director, Pfizer NEAR, Dr. Kodjo Soroh.
The collaboration is aimed at providing increased awareness on cervical and breast cancers and show women that early detection can help in reducing the number of deaths.
Pfizer NEAR is committed to spreading knowledge and fostering hope in the fight against cervical and breast cancers within its region.
