Every year, more than 280,000 women worldwide will die from cervical cancer. 90% of these women are in developing countries. Cervical cancer is the leading cancer-killer of women in countries like Bhutan and here at the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) we believe that good healthcare is a right of every woman in the world- no matter where she was born.
This Christmas we are asking you to please donate to the Bhutan Vaccination Project.
ACCF knows that needless deaths from this disease can be prevented and so have established a National Gardasil Vaccination Program in Bhutan which reduces the risk of cervical cancer for the girls of Bhutan by 70-80%. By taking the Brisbane-invented Gardasil vaccine to Bhutan, we are giving these girls a future, substantially reducing their risk from going through what their mothers, aunts, grandmothers have gone through.
Our aim to reach $70,000 will ensure that this project is able to vaccinate Bhutanese girls to reduce their risk of getting one of the most preventable cancers. You can donate by filling the form below.
