Breast Cancer training in Sri Lanka.
A collaborative project between Zonta Club of Colombo11 (District 25) and Zonta Club of Botany Bay (District 24) arranged a workshop to train nurses in specialist breast cancer detection and treatment.
With very little mammography available in Sri Lanka, the importance of early detection and recognition of breast cancer by self examination became vital.
Ann Selle OAM led the team of trainers to deliver the first workshop to the nurses from all 11 provinces of Sri Lanka. Post course evaluation strongly indicated that additional training is required.
The first workshop was funded by members of Zonta Club of Botany Bay and friends. However the reality is that we now have to extend our fundraising base to ensure early detection of breast cancer for Sri Lankan women becomes a reality.
This project is one that can have an immediate and long term effect on the lives of many women and brings together our Clubs and Districts at an international level.

Bridging a gap in cultural attitude, awareness and education of medical staff has been most rewarding for all those involved.
