Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Pune, India

Total Budget: $92,850

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health, Economic and community development

Cervical cancer is ranked as the second most frequent cancer in women in India. Approximately, 132,000 new cases are diagnosed and approx 70,000 die annually. India accounts for nearly 1/3rd of the global cervical cancer deaths. The most common cause of cervical cancer is the HPV-human papilloma virus. It is estimated that, about 6.6% of women in the general population harbor cervical HPV infection.

Vaccines are available for the prevention of cervical cancer and its administration at a young age for girls is highly recommended. In the present project, it is proposed that adolescent girls from tribal villages of Ambegaon, Junnar & Rajgurunagar blocks of Pune district, Maharashtra, be the target beneficiaries for cervical cancer vaccination.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
