The Campaign led by Dr. Margret Kukeba and Ms Rosina Darcha Head of Department, Nursing and Head of Department, Midwifery respectively, in collaboration with the University Relations Section of CKT-UTAS included social media engagements, a discussion on Nabina Radio, a breast screening exercise at the university hospital, and a seminar for the university community.

Participants were schooled on preventive measures (such as self-breast examination, spousal support techniques), early detection and treatment.
