HA NOI  (VNS) — A campaign for controlling the incidence of breast cancer was launched today in Ha Noi by the health ministry, the Supportive Fund for Cancer Patients-Bright Future Fund and Roche Company.

The campaign, entitled "Controlling breast cancer by the age of 40," has been launched in response to the Vietnamese Women's Day next Tuesday.

It is one of the activities under the project "We care for her", which has been running for three years since 2013.

Under the new month-long campaign, the Supportive Fund for Cancer Patients-Bright Future Fund will join hands with hospitals having cancer wards in Ha Noi and HCM City to give free breast screening to more than 12,000 women over the age of 40. Women, 40 years old and above, reportedly face a high risk of breast cancer. — VNS
