03 November 2021

The Eastern Region Health Affairs has recently concluded the awareness campaign on the early detection of breast cancer under the theme (#وين_كنت_وين_صرت), which means (#Your-situation-before-and-now). The campaign, which lasted for one month (October), has benefited more than 20,000 people through virtual lectures, display screens in public places and squares, awareness exhibitions and initiatives and awareness messages through social media. 

In addition, the campaign aimed at urging women to come forward for early screening, as it is the only means to detect the disease in its early stages; thus increasing the rate of recovery and reducing mortality rate. The campaign also shed light on breast cancer and its prevalence as well as the risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing it.
