Cancer remains the leading cause of death in both men and women in our country. As per the recent WHO report, one in every 10 Indians will develop cancer and one in every 15 will succumb to the disease. Reducing the number of fatalities due to cancer can only be achieved in a country with a population of 1.35 billion, by spreading awareness about timely detection.
Over the last few months, lockdowns due to the ongoing pandemic has made people hesitant towards get their regular testing done. This postponement of appointments and checkups can be far more detrimental, as early treatment of this lethal disease can often be the difference between life and death.
Bharti AXA General Insurance has initiated this cancer awareness initiative to encourage individuals to prioritize and safeguard their health and lives with the right precaution. The company expects this campaign to motivate people to adopt a better lifestyle by creating awareness around the early signs and dangers of this disease.
