The Ministry of Health (MOH) continues the National Campaign for Early Detection of Breast Cancer, which was launched on September 16 and lasts until March 14 next year.
The National Campaign is organized by the Ministry of Health, represented by the Women & Child Health Department (WCHD) and in collaboration with the Oman Cancer Association (OCA) and Hoffmann–La Roche Company.
The Campaign toured all the Sultanate's Governorates, starting from Dhofar and ending in Al-Dhahira. It aims at familiarizing and educating the community of the early detection of various breast diseases.
During the campaign, women between 40 – 69 old years will be examined through the mammogram, where the global and local statistics proved that this age-group is the most vulnerable category to the various breast tumors, especially the malignant ones.
