In conjunction with Cervical Cancer Awareness month in January, Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) is collaborating with ROSE Foundation (ROSE), a non-profit organisation to focus on eliminating cervical cancer through early detection advocacy in the country. SJ ECHO, a local community platform is aiding to spread the information amongst the targeted community and to drive a free do-it-yourself (DIY) cervical cancer screening programme.
Through the five-day ‘If Not Now, When? #endcervicalcancer’ programme which was launched today, 300 Human Papillomavirus (HPV) PCR self-sampling swabs are being distributed to women in the Subang Jaya community.
