Raising awareness of cancer for Arabic women

Simar Amad is a Community Development worker with Arabic Welfare. Simar has recently shared her own experience of cancer with Arabic speaking women in a strategy aimed to increase awareness of breast and cervical cancer.

In collaboration with the Cancer Council, BreastScreen Victoria and PapScreen Victoria, Simar held a cancer screening information session for Arabic speaking women from Africa and the Middle East. The session was held in December 2013 at NMIT Broadmeadows and attracted great interest from 28 participants who had previous poor knowledge of these issues.

The need for similar sessions has been clearly identified and Simar is planning to conduct these in the Hume and Moreland areas over the next few months. Please contact us for more information.
