An Initiative for Women’s Freedom from Fear of Cancer

We think cancer is a challenging pause, not a full stop. We’re here to constantly fight for freedom from fear of cancer. Taking the same thoughts forward, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, we have launched "Ayushmati" a NCI initiative for Women’s Freedom from Fear of Cancer.
It is a part of our Awareness program #YesWeCare.

Through "Ayushmati", women of age 40 and above can avail free Cancer Screening Session
on any of the pre-decided Saturdays throughout the year.

“Ayushmati” has been initiated upholding the 5P approach which is the core philosophy of NCI. We believe in taking Predictive, Precise, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory approach towards our fight against cancer. It can help educate the women upon imbibing the practices of self-care and advancements in cancer research. It also helps them access the right channels in order to take the first step towards freedom from cancer.


More than 1925 women have been screened so far through “Ayushmati” for cancers prevalent among Indian women. National Cancer Institute (NCI), Nagpur launched this initiative on 8 March, International Women’s Day in 2019, to not just celebrate the day but to reach out and give a participatory platform for the women of our society to become an Ayushmati, and care for themselves and other women in the true sense through Awareness, Education and Early Detection of Cancer. This is needed in the times as unfortunately, less than half of all Indian women cannot undergo the recommended screenings they need.
