Bowelscan is a public awareness program seeking to increase community knowledge of bowel cancer and its symptoms as well as the distribution of faecal occult blood testing kits to facilitate early diagnosis.
The aims of the Bowelscan program are to:
• enhance public awareness of the need of bowel cancer screening;
• promote and coordinate the Bowelscan program annually;
• emphasise the importance of bowel cancer screening for both men and women over the age of 40.
Bowelscan is a not-for-profit initiative. The successful operation of Bowelscan, and its accessibility to a wide range of people, is made possible by the voluntary support of a large number of pharmacies, pathology laboratories and Rotary members. We thank all involved for their contribution.
