Cancer Awareness at JDWNRH

Bhutan is seeing a significant rise in Cancer every year. Making the public aware of the disease and creating awareness amongst the public is one of the main goals of Bhutan Cancer Society and Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital. Bhutan Cancer Society in collaboration with JDWNRH has carried a range of advocacy campaigns by setting up health camps for prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer. BCS has provided nutritional supplements to cancer patients undergoing treatment at the oncology ward at JDWNRH. Bhutan Cancer Society and JDWNRH are working together to strengthen the population based cancer registry in Bhutan. We hope to achieve a systematic compilation of patient data and empower patients
through information maintained and provided from the cancer registry.
