LAPO Set To Screen 200,000 Women For Cancer

LAPO is set to screen 200,000 women for cancer under the LAPO Community Campaign for Cancer Control (LAPO-C4) project in Nigeria.

The Executive Director, Sabina Idowu-Osehobo said the organization will promote early detection and prevention of the disease under the project in Edo, Lagos, Enugu, Imo state and FCT, Abuja, in partnership with community-based organisations (CBOs).

She said breast cancer was fast ravaging the women folk nationwide due largely to lifestyle and poor nutrition.
