The Lagos State Government has revealed plans to screen One hundred thousand women for breast and cervical cancer annually free of charge.

The Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Doctor Olusegun Ogboye, stated this during a community outreach campaign programme to commemorate the World Cancer Day in Lagos, at Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area Secretariat.

Ogboye said free screenings for breast and cervical cancer had since commenced in sixty-two State health facilities, including designated General Hospitals, offering gynaecology and obstetrics care services and flagship primary health care centres across the State.

He noted that this year’s World Cancer Day with the theme: “Close The Care Gap”, provided yet another opportunity to improve awareness on cancer, encourage its prevention through early screening and detection, diagnosis and prompt treatment of the various types of cancers.
