Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

By 2020 breast cancer is set to be the most common type of cancer among all women in India. The highest mortality rate occurring in those aged 30-50 (Singh et al., 2018). The key solution to this problem is prevention and recognising early signs, which could be achieved through breast health education such as self-examination (Khokhar, 2018).

The aim of the project is to change behaviour to normalise self-breast examination by women in India via the implementation of a mobile technology intervention via Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) to challenge a serious public health phenomenon in India.
