KUCHING: Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have been urged to submit their proposal to the government on areas where to carry out their advocacy for their breast cancer awareness program.

Women, Childhood, and Community Wellbeing Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah made this call at the Pink Charity Run here today.

“The government has some allocation for next year. We understand that NGOs and breast cancer survivors play a very important role in helping the government to carry out an advocacy program,” she said in her opening speech.

On the run, she said the purpose was also to carry out an advocacy for breast cancer and to raise awareness to the people with regards to breast cancer.

“The government has allocated support especially for those in the B40 group so that they can seek treatment not only in government hospitals but also in private hospitals,” she said.

Fatimah also said for breast cancer patients receiving radiotherapy treatments, 17 percent are in stage one while 40 per cent were those categorised in the stage 2,3 and 4 groups.

“The government has also given some allocation for last year and this is ongoing because like every other disease, ongoing research is also being carried out and new medicine being discovered,” she said.
