RFCA Ghana donate specialized equipment and finance personnel training to deserving institutions, particularly in areas where no mammography facilities exist in the public sector, so that free screening is provided. Our yearlong awareness talks include free one-on-one screening and training in BSE with certified nurses, effectively overcoming the cultural barrier that women face to obtaining reliable information. RFCA Ghana covers the cost of further testing, if required, for economically challenged women as a follow-up to our yearlong clinical examination sessions.
