The Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center provides hospice and palliative care to terminally ill patients. Our team of providers are certified by the Center to Advance Palliative Care, and provide care to terminally ill patients incorporating the the socio-cultural variables surrounding end of life care in the region.
The focus of our preventive oncology program at the Binaytara Foundation cancer center is two-fold: To educate community members about cancer, and to increase the uptake of screening for preventable cancers – primarily cervical cancer.
Earlier in 2020, we implemented Project SISTER, a city-wide cervical cancer screening program in Janakpurdham to increase the rate of cervical cancer among women in this region.
