For us at the Akbaraly Foundation, the best way to celebrate International Women’s Day is to allow all women to actively take care of their own health.

Over the last week, the Akbaraly Foundation carried out numerous prevention, awareness and early diagnosis activities in Antananarivo, which involved the staff of the Foundation, the Ministry of Education and the Sipromad Group for a total of over 100 participants.

All women were offered the opportunity to undergo Pap smears and breast exams to prevent the most common female cancers that, in Madagascar, put the life of one in five women at risk.

Taking care of women is our mission, today and every day, because a woman in good health is a woman who is able to actively help her family, her community and her country.
