Choithrams joins forces with Medecins Sans Frontieres to bring hope to more than 20,000 women in Malawi

Choithrams is supporting 1999 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)’s efforts to bring comprehensive medical care to thousands of cervical cancer patients in Malawi. The collaboration will provide much-needed relief for many women suffering from cancer in the Southern African country by providing timely intervention to a disease that is preventable, detectable, and treatable in the early stages.

The donations from Choithrams will help to improve cervical cancer screening, and provide patients with access to diagnosis and treatment through Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, a public healthcare facility supported by MSF and serving Malawi’s population in the Blantyre and Chiradzulu districts.

Expanding on the remit of the support, Executive Director of MSF UAE, Mario Stephan, said: “The cervical cancer project aims to provide comprehensive cervical cancer services in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH). The project will focus on comprehensive continuity of care-approach by rolling out a spectrum of patient-centreed cervical cancer activities in the area of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention and treatment.”
