LUNGSOD NG TANAUAN, Batangas, Mayo 19 (PIA)- May 250 kababaihan ang nakatakdang sumailalim sa libreng cervical cancer screening sa darating na Mayo 29, 2017 na gaganapin sa Governor Modesto Castillo Memorial Cultural Center sa lungsod na ito.

Pangungunahan ng City Health Office ang programang ito na naglalayong matukoy at mabigyang lunas ang mga dahilan ng pagkakasakit at pagdami ng bilang ng mga namamatay na kababaihan sanhi ng karamdamang may kaugnayan sa cervical cancer.

Ang hakbang na ito ay alinsunod sa Proclamation No. 368 ng Department of Health (DOH) na nagdedeklara sa buwan ng Mayo bilang “Cervical Cancer Awareness Month”.

Batay sa tala ng pamahalaang lungsod,patuloy ang pagtaas ng bilang ng maternal mortality sa mga nagbubuntis at nanganganak. Ilan sa mga pangunahing dahilan nito ang kawalan ng kakayahan na matustusan ang kanilang regular na medical check up at kakulangan ng tamang impormasyon.

Taong 2014 nang unang isinagawa ang programa kung saan ginagawa ang visual inspection with acetic acid wash.

Layon ng paglulunsad ng programa na mabigyan ng kamalayan ang mga kababaihang Tanaueno sa peligrong dala ng cervical cancer gayundin ang pag-aangat ng kalidad ng kaalaman sa masusing pangangalaga ng pagkababae upang makaiwas sa mga sakit na tulad ng Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) at Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
