Breast Cancer Screening in “mohalla” clinics in Delhi
April 7, 2016
Yesterday, we had the privilege of meeting the Delhi CM, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, regarding the idea of conducting breast cancer screening in the upcoming ‘mohalla’ clinics in Delhi.
The AAP government is planning to launch 1100 mohalla clinics by the end of this year and a major thrust in these clinics will be early detection of cancers.
Mr. Kejriwal & Mr. Satyendra Jain analysed a novel breast cancer screening device, which has been manufactured by UE Lifesciences and they agreed to carry out a pilot project using this device in some of their mohalla clinics.
I was personally impressed to see the CM already aware of the burden of breast cancer in our country and I admire his vision to screen patients for this dreaded condition.
