Taking Down Cancer – Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd.

As we observe World Cancer Day on 4th February, it is essential we use this day as a day to debunk some myths that shall allow the world to become cancer free. Many people believe that there is no need to talk about cancer and as the symptoms of the diseases cannot be detected. However, that’s not true; if cancer is detected at the right time, then we can prevent 30% of cancer cases. Today it has become necessary that everyone is aware of cancer and dismiss the myths that are attached to the disease. The primary goal behind observing this day is to reduce the number of people dying due to cancer by 2020. Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd, a research organization working in social development to promote health and hygiene, believes cancer awareness and cancer care is must to make the country healthy. Thousands of lives can be saved through cancer education and raising awareness.

The campaign to educate and raise awareness cannot be done by the  government alone  rather individuals will play a crucial role in reaching out to majority of the people. People can raise awareness through social media platforms and engage in discussions over cancer prevention. Awareness can be raised through wall posters, e-posters, wall graphities etc. In the rural areas, where technology has not been able to penetrate as much, volunteers need to speak to local communities about cancer prevention. However, it is easier said than done and that’s we at innovative financial advisors design social development projects to create awareness about different health related issues in rural areas. Community sensitization sessions are conducted on regular basis in different parts of the country with the help of leading civil society organizations. Awareness is created among local communities through focus group discussions and rallies with an aim to remove myths around cancer. Innovative Financial Advisors also builds local capacity to help families of patients to cope with the disease. Corporate houses that take up health as their CSR activity should focus on providing cancer treatment for people who find it difficult to access. Apart from investing in cancer care infrastructure, corporate houses working in cancer prevention in terms of drugs and equipments. Efforts need to be directed towards devising inexpensive cancer tree options that will allow many lives to be saved. Information related to cancer should be disseminated among people and everyone should unite towards this cause. Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. believes that it is an opportunity for everyone to unite our voices towards this cause and reduce the economic burden of cancer on the future generations.

    With regards to the whole paradigm shift in the disease burden from communicable diseases to non communicable diseases(NCDs) only few NCDs have gained attention like Hypertension, Cardiac conditions & Diabetes being the majors whereas NCDs like cancer still remains low in terms of expertise from Govt. officials together with the awareness campaigns reaching out to the 69% rural population of India. The need of the hour is to drive forces not only to the preventive aspects of rural health but also equally emphasize on the awareness generation and reach out for beneficiaries along with more development & deployment of experts in the system.

    According to WHO,7 lakh Indians died of cancer last year while 1.48 lakh died of HIV in 2011. International funding organisations and donors have spent heavily on raising HIV related awareness in India and rest of the world. India and other countries have to lobby and address the priority areas of concern then to accept and go with the philosophy of the donors and funders. Take adequate steps to bring in funders for the areas where it seems appropriate.

    Sometimes cancer can be prevented. Looking at the whole country, it is quite possible that more than half of cancer deaths could be prevented — if no one used tobacco and if everyone took steps to improve their health. Of course, that is a big “if.”

    Awareness program me can help significantly to prevent cancer.One of the most common reason is the urban lifestyle-smoking & drinking,which has become a trend amongst the youngsters. Choosing not to drink or smoke helps to lower the risk of cancer significantly.Proper diet is also equally important.Prevention is better then cure!!

    Cancer affects the physical condition of a being, but more than the physical condition it has a deep traumatizing impact on the mind. Lives can be saved by spreading cancer awareness and educating people.
