breast cancer

The Minister of State for Communication and Political Affairs, Walid Al-Lafi, has discussed with the National Cancer Control Authority stages of preparing an awareness campaign plan for screening and early detection of breast cancer.

According to the media office of the government, Al-Lafi was briefed on the steps taken to start the campaigns of investigation and early detection, to be launched by the General Authority for Cancer Control during the coming period.

During the meeting, Al-Lafi stressed the support of all public media in its various visual, audio, print, and digital platforms for these campaigns, and harnessing their capabilities and cadres for the success of the campaign throughout Libya.

The Head of the Government of National Unity, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, issued last November a decision to establish the National Cancer Control Authority to develop policies, plans, and programs necessary to combat cancer and follow up on their implementation, and take measures to localize treatment of patients at home, and include all cancer centers to be affiliated with the authority, and prepare a database to determine needs, necessary medicine, and equipment.
