Ji'nan Women's Federation (JWF), in east China's Shandong Province, held a meeting on June 20 to promote the Women's Safety & Health Project and present reproductive health insurance to 1,550 impoverished women.

The project has been listed by the government as one of 10 practical issues serving women and children this year and it is another move to carry out targeted poverty alleviation after 200,000 yuan was donated to 100 impoverished women suffering from cervical or breast cancer (the two cancers) on June 6.

Cervical or breast cancer have become two serious health hazards for women these years, and the strong interrelation between poverty and disease in rural areas cannot be neglected any longer.

It is women's federations' responsibility to implement the Women's Safety & Health Project to help women tackle health issues and integrate social resources to provide social welfare to women with cancer.

The safety & health project is a barrier to disease. The screening for the two cancers give early disease warning, and assistance provides a safety net for people to fall back on in case of special difficulties. These three parts must unite together to ensure women's health and happiness, said officials.

Ji'nan has provided free cervical cancer check-ups for over 840,000 women and free breast cancer check-ups for over 540,000 women. In addition, JWF has enlisted the support of relevant departments and received 6.7 million yuan in funding, helping a total of 2,676 impoverished women.

Furthermore, on the basis of the implementation of the project, women's federations at all levels throughout the city are carrying out various activities such as holding thematic lectures and offering free medical consultations to popularize health knowledge to the public and increase their awareness of cancer screening, thereby improving urban women's health.
