Fund Usage:

Udhavum Ullangal is a not for profit NGO working with the spectrum of Cancer care and prevention in Tamil Nadu. The organization currently has set up a mobile
cancer screening unit in Tirunelveli which routinely screens patients through a series of community level camps and interventions. The set up screens about 6000 patients a year. However, due to the rampant increase in incidence of cancer cases in Tirunelveli, it has become necessary to start screening the population in order to catch the disease early at a rigorous pace. The organization proposes to set up a cancer screening centre in Alangulam with a view to identify cancer patients early and refer them for subsequent treatment. It is hoped to not only bring about a reduction in the number of cancer relateddeaths in the area but also to facilitate a holistic community level change process which will improve their overall status.

Impact:

It is hoped that this project will help us identify and refer cancer patients early. It will also help in contributing to a reduction in the number of preventable deaths and morbidities due to cancer. This district will be a model for follow up, tracking and treatment of cancers, so that the target population gets sensitized and report at the health facilities in time to benefit from the intervention.
