On Tuesday, the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) commenced with their National Cancer Outreach Programme in the north.
According to Rolf Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of CAN, the screening is for cervical and breast cancers for sexually active, older than 20 years women and prostate (PSA focused) for men over 45 years of age.
While elaborating, Hansen said: “We have the capacity and financial means to screen 100 women and 50 men per day complimentary and only the first 150 patients will be registered per point, therefore first come, first served.”
The Association services are in support of the Ministry of Health and Social Services, therefore they advise Namibians to refer to the Ministry centres in their regions.
“For more information contact Martha Angolo on 0814935441 and connect with us and take a glimpse of what CAN does and how you can impact lives and help fight cancer in Namibia,” concluded Rolf.
The Association then informed citizens that CAN will be at the Cathrien Beullen Clinic in Oshivelo on 8 March from 10:00, at the Omuthiya clinic on 9 March from 09:00, at the Iihongo Community, Iihongo Combined School on 10 March from 09:00, at Odibo Clinic on 11 March from 09:30 and at the Ruacana Clinic on 12 March from 10:00.
