Introduction - Grameen Sneh Foundation
Grameen Sneh Foundation is a registered non-governmental Organization established with a zealous endeavor of striving endlessly towards the welfare of poor people underprivileged cancer patients, without distinction of caste or religion. Grameen Sneh Foundation,established in the year of 2009, with the mission to provide improved quality of life to every individual through sustained change in their social, physical, economical status with special emphasis on the rural people and most vulnerable section of the society like women, children and elder people.
Grameen Sneh Foundation is working towards the Cancer Awareness Programmes, which include:
• Spreading awareness on the dangers inherent in accepted social practices such as chewing of tobacco, early marriage, multiple pregnancies, etc., which are responsible for approximately 70% of cancers in India.
• Imitating steps for the early detection of cancer since treatment at this stage leads to a cure in a majority of cases.
• To provide complete assistance to cancer patients through Health check-up camp –cum- Cancer Detection camp, Health & wellness Festival, Hausla – fight against cancerand SNEH App ( Sneh App is the first App in India to assist the cancer patients & Survivors).
GrameenSneh Foundation has created awareness on Cancer, its causes & preventive measures. Displaying slides and videos, GrameenSneh Foundation rolled out statistics to prove the alarming increase in cancer cases in recent years. Demonstrative videos to explain how to carry out self-examination (for Breast cancer) were shown and advise the people on the measures to be taken to protect themselves from the dreadful disease. The programmewas well received by all and was very useful.
Grameen Sneh Foundation’s Cancer Awareness programme is designed to develop a culture of health at our society, create awareness, and ultimately reduce the participants’ risk of cancer through early detection and intervention. We use participant demographics, claims history, and proprietary data-management tools to assess the specific needs of the health plan population and develop a Cancer Awareness program that fits our society.
Checking for cancer (or for conditions that may lead to cancer) in people who have no symptoms is called screening. Screening can help doctors find and treat some types of cancer early. Generally, cancer treatment is more effective when the disease is found early.
Grameen Sneh Foundation’s Cancer Awareness team identifies those participants who have not completed their target activity. Target activities consist of preventative cancer screenings, as appropriate for specific age and gender populations based on national guidelines. When we identify that a participant has not had their target activity, our Cancer Awareness team contacts the participant by phone to encourage their completion of the target activity. GrameenSneh Foundation’s Cancer Awareness team explains the importance and benefits of the target activity. Cancer Awareness information is also mailed to participants
