IMA GOA STATE & MUSKAAN CANCER AWARENESS
    & DETECTION CAMPAIGN 2007, UNDER AAO GAON CHALEN

Recent reports have indicated rising trends in the incidence  of cancers among Goans, predominantly among women. E.g. Within the last  3 decades the annual incidence of reported breast cancer cases in Goa  Medical College rose from 14 to 250. The morbidity and mortality from  cancers is even greater amongst the rural populations as they report   in the late stages due to various factors e.g. ignorance, poverty, unhealthy    lifestyles including tobacco use, lack of awareness about warning symptoms   of cancers & availability of medical care.

It is against this background that under the Aao Gaon   Chalen Program, the Indian Medical Association Goa State and Muskaan   joined hands to stem the tide of cancers in Goa, in partnership with  Goa Medical College & Directorate of Health Services by launching   the Cancer Awareness and Detection Campaign 2007. The Campaign shall mainly span remote villages that are adopted by each of the 7 IMA Branches   in Goa, thus embodying the current Theme launched by the IMA Goa State  President Dr. Atchut Kakodkar, “Working together works!”
