Jakarta Governor, Anies Baswedan reminds people to detect cancer early since it has a high risk of death.

Early detection is the basic thing to prevent cancer

According to him, early detection is the best thing to handle and cure cancer patients. Many cancer patients can't be cured because most patients did not check it early or too late to treat it.

"Early detection is the basic thing to prevent cancer," he stated when attending World Cancer Day 2018 by focusing on Cervical Cancer Prevention at Fine Arts and Ceramics Museum, Taman Sari, West Jakarta, Tuesday (2/13).

He informed, number of people who conducted cervical cancer early detection in Jakarta in 2017 is increased 114 percent than the year before. Thus Jakarta Provincial Government keeps committed to reach the citizen and make them easier to detect cancer early.

"Besides Puskesmas, we also prepare ambulances to reach people and give check-up service for free," he said.

For information, this event was also attended by Health Minister, Nila Djuwita F. Moeloek; Main TP PKK Head, Erni Guntarti Tjahjo Kumulo; Jakarta TP PKK Head, Fery Farhati Baswedan.
