Cervical cancer is ranked as the second most frequent cancer in women in India. Approximately, 132,000 new cases are diagnosed and approx 70,000 die annually. India accounts for nearly 1/3rd of the global cervical cancer deaths. The most common cause of cervical cancer is the HPV-human papilloma virus. It is estimated that, about 6.6% of women in the general population harbor cervical HPV infection.
Vaccines are available for the prevention of cervical cancer and its administration at a young age for girls is highly recommended. In the present project, it is proposed that adolescent girls from tribal villages of Ambegaon, Junnar & Rajgurunagar blocks of Pune district, Maharashtra, be the target beneficiaries for cervical cancer vaccination.
Your project is "Fully Pledged". This means the amount of the pledges is equal to the total budget of the project. Now the project needs to be finalized and go through the approval process with The Rotary Foundation. This process gets started on the administration page.
Project listed for the 2018-19 Rotary Year.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
