Minister calls for regular cancer testing
The Minister of State for Primary Health Care Joyce Moriku has urged girls to abstain from sex as a preventive measure against catching cervical cancer.
She also urged women to frequently test for various cancers, especially breast and cervical cancer, because early detection eases treatment.
Moriku made the remarks yesterday while presiding over the Push Until Something Happens Ministries’ Charity walk from Mulago Cancer Institute to Old Kampala Secondary School.
The walk was intended to create awareness against the disease.
