A meeting on the theme of caring for cervical and breast cancer patients kicked off recently in the city of Guigang, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, aiming to call on the whole of society to pay more attention to women's health.

The campaign was co-sponsored by Guigang Women's Federation (GWF) and China Life Insurance Company's Guigang branch.

Officials from women's federations at all levels and the insurance company's Guigang branch attended the event.

A total of 26,143 women have bought the "two cancers" insurance, said Lin Sen, deputy general manager of the Guigang Branch of China Life Insurance Company.

Wu Jian, general manager of the insurance company, promised at the event that the company is confident and capable of participating in the construction of the social security system and they would continue to carry out the "two cancers" insurance project so as to help women's healthy development.

Chen Xiaojun, president of GWF, also gave a speech at the event. She said that the CPC Central Committee has always valued the importance of women's health and makes people's health a strategic priority for building a moderately prosperous society in a comprehensive way.

Chen added that the problems of illness-related poverty still exist amongst impoverished women.

For those women suffering from cervical and breast cancer, they face two major problems. One is that the treatment cost is too high while the reimbursement ratio is low; another is that the services cannot cover all patients.

Chen hopes that women's federations at all levels and social organizations can pay attention to the prevention of the "two cancers" and contribute their efforts to promoting women's healthy development.

Furthermore, women should improve their ability to respond to health risks by virtue of their insurance, said Chen.
