The Pink Caravan's mobile clinics, in UAE, received a huge public response from citizens and residents, alike, on the 6th day of the campaign activities.
The medical teams managed to examine over 600 applicants in Dreamland's clinics in Umm Al Qaiwain and at the Outlet Mall in Dubai on Friday 6th of April.
The awareness teams held mini workshops for female applicants, where the teams explained the method of self-examination and the necessity of early detection and regular examination.
The lectures were highly regarded by attendees.
Speaking about the women's response to screening, Dr Sawsan Al Madhi, Head of the Pink Caravan's Awareness and Medical Committee, said: "We have been noticing a high demand from women in the major and remote cities for screening from the moment we started our activities a week ago.
The significance of our presence in remote areas this year was apparent, particularly as women's response to screening was higher than ever. The Pink Caravan helped these women gain confidence and break through the barrier of fear of the disease and screening".
"A number of cases have been referred to mammogram and ultrasound exams after showing some suspicious symptoms. The presence of the mammogram and ultrasound clinic with the medical personnel in remote areas has facilitated the test process and made it faster and with more precise and reliable results", she added.
