Did you know that cervical cancer is the leading cause of death of women of reproductive age in Kenya? Overall, it is the 3rd leading cause of death in Kenya after infectious and cardiovascular diseases. According to the Ministry of Health, at least 8 Kenyan women die daily from cervical cancer. In addition, the National Cancer Institute notes that only 14 percent of all Kenyan women have been screened.
We wish to encourage all women of reproductive age to get screened. If cervical cancer is screened and diagnosed early, it can be treated. At Sagam, we provide cervical cancer screening for free.
As part of our screening services, we have teamed up with MobileODT and are using their innovative screening device that allows for quick diagnosis and consultation with senior ob/gyn consultants. The camera, which is connected to a smart phone, allows the health provider to capture a photo, take client details and share the photo in real-time with an approved ob/gyn consultant. This is all supported with an online platform that has been set up specifically for SCH.
Please fill free to visit our ob/gyn clinic every Tuesday from 8.30 am to 4 pm or come by during one of our outreaches to receive the service.
