Rebaz Foundation is planning to have a Breast Cancer Campaign. This one-week campaign aims to spread awareness on self-examination of the breast, focusing on displaced women in the camps of Kurdistan Region. Adding to that, several seminars will be held in universities across the region. It will be held in three cities: Hewlêr, Sulaymaniyah, and Duhok. The project is divided into four phases.
The first phase is distribution of 10,000 brochures for the women how to examine their breast. This brochure will be distributed in several locations. The second phases is a training for the women. In this training the women are taught how to examine their breast. The third phase the mobile teams will examine the women in the camps for lumps or any other issues. At last, if necessary the patients will be re-directed to PAR Hospital, for MRI, Ultrasound, and Mammography tests.
Early detection of Breast Cancer can lead to prevention. Rebaz Foundation started this campaign in order to expand the knowledge related to breast cancer and how to detect it among young women. As part of this campaign, Rebaz Foundation would like to give a one-hour seminar by an experienced doctor, so that young women at University of Kurdistan Hewlêr know how to examine themselves.
