Free medical and women’s health services during STC

Provincial Population Office-Clinical Services
July 9, 2018
 
 
 Headed by Dr. Elizabeth Bacsafra, the Laguna Provincial Population Office-Clinical Services offered free medical and women’s health services during Governor Ramil L. Hernandez’s Serbisyong Tama Caravan (STC) medical missions for June 2018. Supported by doctors, midwives, and volunteer workers, STCs bring medical missions in various communities to reach more people who are in need of medical assistance.
 
        On June 1, the Clinical team assisted in the distribution of free medicines to hundreds of people during the STC held at the covered court of Brgy. Bagumbayan in Sta. Cruz, Laguna. The midwives were also able to perform Pap smear or Pap tests on five women from the said barangay.
 
         During the caravan held in Brgy. Maulawin, Pagsanjan on June 8, three patients were given free Pap test by the Clinical midwives, while the rest of the team assisted in medicine distribution. And on June 29, ten patients received said free tests at the STC held in Brgy. Longos, Kalayaan.
           
       A Pap smear involves collection of a sample of cells from a woman's cervix to test for the presence of pre-cancerous or cancerous cells on the cervix. Through this procedure, thousands of women’s lives are being saved by early detection and treatment of cervical cancer.
