Magnus Medi, a global medical value travel facilitator, headquartered in Mumbai, India and in Uganda, in association with Kokilaben Dhirubai Ambani Hospital, one of India’s top 10 hospitals and le Mémorial Hospital in Uganda, have organised a 2-day free cancer & gynaecological medical camp.
The camp brings together medical specialists from India and Uganda, who will be offering free consultations, screening and referrals for all types of cancer and gynaecological conditions such as fibroids, sexual dysfunctions, STDs, infertility and fistula.
The camp will be conducted by specialist breast surgeons, gynaecologists, radiologists and medical oncologists from Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital from India as well as le Mémorial Hospital in Uganda. The delegation from India will be led by Dr. Ram Narain, Executive Director, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. According to Mr. Mihir Vora, Founder & CEO of MagnusMedi the medical camp is targeted at “serving patients who have been diagnosed with or are undergoing treatment for any form of cancer or more serious gynaecological conditions and are in need of a second expert opinion and or require information about affordable advanced treatment options in India.” The camp will run from Friday, June 1, 2018 to Saturday June 2nd 2018, starting at 07:30 AM – 04:30 PM at le Mémorial Hospital, at Kitiko-Lubowa, Kigo Road, off Entebbe Road. There will also be a blood donation exercise.
The medical experts will also address a meeting of Ugandan medical experts on recent advances in the diagnosis and management of cancer and minimal access gynaecologic surgery.
MagnusMedi has partnerships with nearly all of India’s best Medicare providers who boast of some of the world’s leading specialists in cancer care, urology, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, dentistry, ENT, orthopedic, nephrology, organ transplantation and neurology practices amongst many others.
This is the beginning of many future knowledge and skills transfer initiatives between Ugandan and Indian medical experts that should be mutually beneficial to both countries,” said Mihir. According to Judith Komuhangi Sheenah, the MagnusMedia Uganda Country Manager, the decision to focus on cancer and gynaecologic conditions was informed by the fact that five of the leading killer gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulval, all present symptoms similar to common gynecological ailments.
“For example, according to cancer of the cervix uteri is the fourth most common cancer among women worldwide. A 33.6% prevalence rate of the human papillomavirus (HPV), the leading cause of cervical cancer among women in Uganda, combined with low screening uptake has resulted in the country having one of the highest cervical cancer incidence rates in the world of 47.5 per 100,000 per year,” said Komuhangi. “As a result of limited awareness and low levels of early screening, 80% of the women who present with cervical cancer at the Uganda Cancer Institute (UCI), have advanced stages of the disease, according to Dr. Jackson Orem, the Executive Director of Uganda Cancer Institute in a recent media interview. Early testing and treatment presents higher chances of recovery for all cancers. We believe therefore, that this medical camp, will add on the efforts of other stakeholders in raising awareness about the importance of early testing and access to affordable treatment here in Uganda and in India,” she added.
Given the high demand for the experts, all consultations will strictly be by appointment, according to Komuhangi.
