A release from the Ministry of Health, issued on Tuesday 7th June,2011, indicated that it will be the first ever Women’s Health Forum that will be held under the theme, “Prevention of Cervical Cancer and HPV Infection”.
The release further stated that the event is being organized particularly for women who are within their reproductive years and beyond.
The Ministry of Health has incorporated the services of a gynecological and reproductive cancer specialist, Dr. Troy Gatcliffe, from the Baptist Health International in Miami. He is expected to discuss the various issues pertaining to the prevention of cervical cancer and HPV infection and associated concerns.
An invitation has therefore been extended to all women to attend the forum that will be held at the Ballroom of the St. Kitts Marriott, on Sunday 26th June, from 4:00pm.
Women residing in the Federation are encouraged to attend and find out the latest information about the only preventable cancer and its preceding infection.
