BEAT Oral Cancer Campaign

April is marked as the Oral Cancer Awareness month worldwide. According to Aasanda data, Oral cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in the Maldives. This is why we had decided to initiate a one year Oral Cancer Awareness and Screening Campaign this April.

The BEAT Oral Cancer campaign is done in partnership with Maldivian Dental Association and State Trading Organization has partnered with us as the sponsor for the campaign.

This Campaign will consist of 2 main components; Awareness and Screening. Awareness will be done using different forms of mediums including TV, Radio and social media. We will also be using posters, flyers, leaflets and LED/LCD Screen messages. In addition to this we will be sending Presentations and additional information on Oral Cancers to be presented at schools, hospitals and health centers across the country. And we will be conducting awareness sessions in schools in Male’.

The screening component of the campaign will be carried out in Dental Clinics that have partnered with us. Dental Clinics have partnered with us are; IGMH Dental, ADK Dental, Medica Hospital, Hulhumale’ Hospital, My Clinic, The Clinic, Master Dental, 32 Dental, Vital Care, Smiles Dental and Unique Dental. The clinics have been given oral screening forms to be used during the free screening of all patients coming in for dental appointments.
