The Exquisite Magazine EMAC #SmearIt walk and SMEARATHON (Free cervical screening) 2018 is set to hold in Lagos, Ibadan and Ijebu-Ode on the 1st, 4th and
8th of September respectively in partnership with Act Foundation.
This year, the Exquisite magazine annual walk for cervical cancer prevention will
provide free screening for over 1000 women in these three states. The event will feature alongside the free screening, a brief talk on cervical cancer, walk and workout session, music, entertainment and networking.
Every hour in Nigeria, women die of cervical cancer, a disease that is largely preventable thanks to Screening tests and Vaccination.
We must raise awareness and educate everyone on preventive methods for this form of cancer that is preventable and treatable when detected early.
Our drive is to get women screened, children vaccinated while spreading the word THAT EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES.
