Women health and empowerment stall


A informative and interactive stall on Women health, awareness and empowerment was arranged at a fair in Borivali West on 11 th Feb, 2024 by our team. It was a successful event and many women took advantage of it.


Some pearls on women health from that discussion..


Our health is our responsibility..

Knowledge is power !!


The world is tough to survive and so is a woman.


Whether she is a working mother or a home maker she has tons of tasks and responsibilities to do. But one thing that should not be forgotten amidst all these is a woman's health. 


A healthy woman makes a healthy and happy home !!!


To all the women, in difficult times, remember The Bhagwad Gita  "Change is the law of universe" . 


Time heals everything..It's a phase of life which will pass. 


That bad phase too shall pass..



Breast cancer : Knowledge is power


Symptoms 


A painless lump is the most common symptom. 

Abnormal nipple discharge, nipple retraction, dimpling of skin of breast, change in shape and size of breast may be seen.


Breast self examination - All women after 25 years should examine their breast every month and report any changes to their doctor.

Breast cancer screening - Mammogram every 2 yearly starting from 45-50 years to 70 years. It should be done one yearly for high risk woman.


Cervical cancer can be prevented !


Cervical cancer HPV vaccination is recommended for girls starting from 9 to 11 years upto 26 years preferably, but can be taken upto 45 years, though efficacy decreases.
