Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among Jamaican women followed by cervical cancer. Cervical cancer rates in the Caribbean are three times higher than that of North America. This cancer is completely preventable by accessing regular screening. In addition, Jamaica is reported as having one of the highest Prostate Cancer rates in the world with an incidence rate of 79.1 out of every 100,000 men.Support This Cause

In 2016, the Society administered screenings to over 20,000 Jamaicans across the island.
