In an inspiring move to commemorate the Philippine National Women’s Month, the Rotary Club of Pasay MOA sponsored a free cervical screening for female teachers of the Jose Rizal Elementary School located at Park Avenue, Cor. Galvez St. Pasay City. This initiative – Silip Cervix Sagip Buhay, aimed at promoting health and well-being among educators, underscores the critical role teachers play in shaping our future generations, and the importance of ensuring their health and wellness.

A Salute to Our Educators

Teachers are the backbone of our society, imparting knowledge, values, and life skills to children and adults alike. Their contribution goes beyond the classroom, influencing the community and shaping the societal norms of tomorrow. However, in the relentless pursuit of nurturing minds, teachers often place their health on the back burner. Recognizing this, the decision to offer Free cervical cancer screenings is a significant step towards acknowledging and addressing the health concerns of female educators.

The Importance of Cervical Screening

Cervical cancer is a highly preventable disease, yet it remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths among women in the Philippines. Regular cervical screenings are crucial in detecting precancerous conditions and early stages of cervical cancer when treatment can be most effective. Despite its proven benefits, many women skip these screenings due to costs, lack of access, or awareness. By providing these tests free of charge, the initiative aims to break down these barriers, encouraging more women to prioritize their health.
