The constitution of task force is a part of Memorandum of Understanding for Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in the higher education institutions of the country that has been signed on Tuesday between HEC and Pink Ribbon.

The MoU is a follow-up of a meeting held in August this year between HEC Chairperson Dr. Javaid Laghari and Pink Ribbon Pakistan Chairperson Fariba Shiraz Thomson.

It was also decided that two focal persons will be nominated from higher education institutions of each province, who will work and coordinate with all the vice chancellors and Steering Committee of the Pink Ribbon Awareness Campaign.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Laghari underlined the seriousness of the disease. He said that over 1.5 million higher education students across the country can play an important role in spreading awareness about the disease. "According to a recent report, 50 per cent of our population lives below poverty line and, in this scenario, the gravity of the situation needs more focused and passionate effort to reach at the grassroots level," he added.

HEC Executive Director (ED) Dr. Sohail Naqvi said breast cancer is a big social issue, which needs immediate measures. "We will use all our considerable resources for success of this campaign. Extra efforts will be made for conducting meaningful research in this area. We must understand that this is a problem, which is very closer to our own homes and it needs a concerted and consistent approach to be dealt with," he said.

Fariba Shiraz Thomson, on the occasion, thanked the HEC for acknowledging significance of the issue and join hand with the Pink Ribbon for spreading awareness throughout universities of the country.

Dr. Samina Amin said that HEC has become a strategic partner of the Pink Ribbon Pakistan, for extending research and development, academic and technical support for the breast cancer awareness through provision of its outreach, human resource and facilities. "HEC and Pink Ribbon will jointly initiate research projects on different aspects of Breast Cancer in Pakistan, besides holding Continuing Professional Education seminars and workshops to highlight different aspects of breast cancer. HEC will disseminate awareness through all available communication channels," she said.

In this regard, the first awareness seminar was organized by Fatima Jinnah Women University on October 13, 2011 for students of the University, which catered to over 200 students. Another seminar was organised on October 28, 2011 for the female staff members of HEC, spouses of male members and focal persons of 16 higher education institutions of the twin cities.

Forthcoming plans also include a road show to be organized all over Pakistan for awareness of masses on breast cancer causes and precautions. HEC and Pink Ribbon will form a working group for need assessment and formulation of action plan for next five years.
