In collaboration with the Grounds for Health organization we launched a campaign to offer a free of charge cervical cancer screening to our female employees between the age of 30-50 years. This is to protect our female workers from developing cancer and detect early stages of cancer that can be treated. It tests for a virus named high risk human papilloma virus (HPV) which causes cervical cells to become abnormal. Most cases of cervical cancer are linked to high-risk HPV.
Creating awareness among the employees is very important according to dr Demis of Grounds of Health. Together with his team he gave counselling in small groups before the individual test is taken. In the unfortunate case of a positive test, a treatment is offered. We would like to thank our partners at Grounds for Health for their support and encourage all women to participate.
