There are many diseases that can be treated if they are detected at an early stage. A number of such diseases include cancers including colon, cervical and breast cancers. All of the mentioned diseases can be fatal if they are not treated in a timely manner. For treatment in a timely manner, it is important that the disease is detected while it is still benign and not that harmful. For that purpose people need to get screened so that they know if they have any kind of morbidity. Many campaigns are being run all over the world for creating awareness about these screening tests among women so that they can help fight their disease while it is still at an early stage.

The mission of this program is to make available the financial resources for the women who have been diagnosed with cervical and breast cancer as per their financial status so that there is no woman who cannot get herself treated because there is a lack of financial resources.
The reasons why this program was ineffective was because a certain eligibility criteria was set for the financial aid of the women who wanted to get screened. Another thing that rendered this program somewhat ineffective was the fact that there was an age bracket for the women to take advantage of these services, since many cases of breast…
