WHPA Launches Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The Women’s Health Protection Association applied to the Ministry of Health with a request to declare October Breast Cancer Awareness month–the chairwoman-founder of the Association–Hran’sh Hakobian told Noyan Tapan.

She said that a march was expected to be organized as part of the month’s campaign aimed at raising as much awareness and funds to sponsor medical examinations for women. A scientific conference on problems of breast cancer–courses in the country’s regions and towns–charity concerts were also scheduled to be organized–with information pamphlets being distributed to the population.

Hakobian said American doctors were scheduled to arrive at the University Mammography Center to examine patients and hold training seminar for their Armenian counterparts.
