The ‘preventable’ cancer Cervical cancer kills more women in India than anywhere in the world. It need not.
Cervical cancer is one of India’s many healthcare ironies. It is a disease that experts say can largely be prevented. Yet, in India, it affects 1,32,000 women each year of whom 72,000 women lose their battle with it, according to the Cervical Cancer-Free Coalition. With greater awareness, it is possible to miligate the damage done by this continuously-exploding bomb if not completely dismantie it.
