The month of October is designated for the International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As in the previous times it has been marked in Ethiopia with a different set of activities. This year a new campaign was launched by the Ministry of Health in collaboration with stakeholders including our association.

The campaign was a demonstration of self breast examination technique for people who visited the following ten health posts in Addis Ababa: Nifas Silk H.P, Bole 17 H.P, Lideta H.P, Addisu Gebeya H.P, Yeka H.P, Kolfe H.P, Kazanchis H.P, Saris H.P, Addis Ketema H.P and Arada H.P.

It is our hope that a large number of people have gained a comprehensive knowledge on how to examine a breast cancer on their own.
