My aunt who lives in Canada told me something about the state of public health in the said country. She told me that Canadian citizens can be arrested for refusing to undergo regular medical checkup or refusing to have their disease treated. Boy, how I wish that the Philippine government has a similar policy. With the inadequacy of public medical services, mandatory checkup or treatment is far from practical. However, various local groups do their share to make the public aware of the benefits of prevention and, of course,of cure. One of those groups is Bravehearts which advocates for cervical cancer prevention. The modern corporate women are now breaking the glass ceilings and walls. So, it is logical for them to be healthy enough in order to be continuously empowered in the corporate scene. It’s a fight. Yes, against men. And against cervical cancer too.
