We aim to improve the accessibility of health services for women in Nepal. Cervical and breast cancer are the top two cancers affecting women in Nepal, yet, when we began our work in 2002 there were simply no services available to screen for these diseases, and the level of awareness of the Nepali women about these cancers was almost none.
