Since its inception, the Karen Leung Foundation has worked tirelessly around the prevention of cervical cancer through increasing vaccination and screening rates. Across the past years, the Foundation has had a flagship programme, Project Teal, which aims to decrease the incident rate of cervical cancer through screening in Hong Kong women. As one of the Foundation's longest-standing programmes, the mission is to provide free cervical cancer screening services (high-risk HPV tests and pap smears), as well as providing an educational component and follow-up advice in accordance with the latest Cervical Cancer Screening Guidelines.
As an extension of Project Teal, KLF is proud to announce this fourth and final phase in collaboration with the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation. Through this final intake, we hope to continue to increase screening uptake, raise awareness, and educate women in Hong Kong. A medical expert as well as the Executive Director of the Foundation, Katharina Reimer, will collaborate to host a series of health talks for all eligible women and girls for the programme, providing not only the tests but also, the knowledge required to stay safe for a lifetime.
Stay tuned for updates and get in touch if you'd like to get involved as a volunteer.
