|Breast Cancer campaigns|
In commemoration of the International Women’s Day (IWD) and Tenth Anniversary of Beijing Declaration, MEWATA revived breast cancer awareness and screening campaign for women, such that three areas have also been covered:
1) Dar es Salaam region in March 2005
The programme is structured in three main phases:
1) Phase 1 – Mass Screening of women
The programme was mainly implemented by Tanzanian women medical doctors and dental practitioners who are members of the association. Other health professionals that included nurses and male medical doctors were also incorporated in the team. Close partnership of MEWATA and a private media company ITV/Radio-One made the mass media campaign quite successful.
