Women Health Awareness
Can Protect Foundation founded in 2015 by Dr. Sumita Prabhakar, a renowned Gynecologist. At Can Protect Foundation we are highly aware of under-attention given to women’s health and the inadequate information available on women’s health. CPF was founded in an effort to address these shortcomings and to bring issues of women’s health to the forefront of basic healthcare awareness. Through advocacy, education, and promotion, We have been making significant strides toward the advancement of women’s health throughout India.
Since our founding, Can Protect Foundation has emphasized the importance of addressing issues of women’s health specially life threatning breast and cervical cancer throughout the life span. Although efforts to advance women’s health were being made by us tended to focus exclusively upon cancer early detection and prevention. We strongly believes that women’s health must be advanced in all stages of life. Thus, we are working passionately to incorporate all stages of women’s health needs into our agendas.
Can Protect Foundation has put wide range of critical women’s health issues in its working circle, primarily those that are ignored or under-attended. We already launched a campaign for the early detection and prevention of Breast Cancer for women in Dehradun. As part of the campaign, Can Protect Foundation has held four free cancer screening camps at the various locations in Dehradun, Uttarakhand and initiated an awareness drive for early detection and regular screening of Breast and Cervical cancer in women.
Also in 2015, Can Protect Foundation undertook a campaign to expand awareness of the increasing prevalence of unplanned pregnancy and its negative impact on women. This campaign has focused primarily on the problem of unplanned pregnancy. As part of our campaign, Can Protect Foundation has held lecture on unplanned pregnancy under the supervision of Dr. Sumita Prabhakar.
