Breast, Cervical & Bowel Screening Awareness Programme vital in light of recent report

8th July 2015

WRDA has won a major contract with the Public Health Agency to deliver breast, cervical and bowel awareness sessions across Northern Ireland. This could not be more timely, as the latest report from the British Medical Journal states that there is a widely held perception that cervical cancer, for example, is a young woman’s disease. In fact, half of deaths related to cervical cancer occur in women over 65. In the period 2010 – 2012, there were 449 deaths from this cancer in women over 65, while 7 deaths were recorded for women aged under 25.

The journal report argues that the upper age limit for cervical screening should be raised to 70. It calls for greater targeting of older women in health campaigns, and this is exactly the message that our Community Facilitators are delivering across Northern Ireland.
