What is BCCCP?
The Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program is a screening program designed to reduce death and disability among women caused by breast and cervical cancer. Public awareness, education, early diagnosis and treatment are key elements in reducing the effects caused by breast and cervical cancer.
