Chinese Cancer Screening Project

How We Can Help

The aim of the Cancer Screening project is to optimise the accessibility and appropriateness of information for the Chinese community to:

  • ensure equal access to information as a means of supporting informed decision making

  • understand cultural and/or other barriers which can prevent or inhibit access to screening programmes

  • increase uptake of screening programmes potentially leading to better health outcomes for the target communities

The Development Worker of this project will also provide follow-up support to people diagnosed with cancer and their family /carers as appropriate.

The project will target breast and cervical cancer screening programmes/services and be delivered in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
