New equipment for cervix cancer prevention program of Stichting Lobi

31 December 2016

On December 13, 2016, Stichting Lobi took new equipment into use for testing on cervical cancer. It regards a staining machine donated by Rosebel Gold Mines with the value of approximately $ 45,000. The new equipment is being used in the process of cervical cancer screening using the "Pap smear" method. This project gives an impulse for a broader approach to the public health problem of cervical cancer. The national policy is designed to reducing the number of new cases of cervical cancer, leading to a decrease in the mortality rate from cervical cancer.
