ABOUT US / Who we are


CAPED – Cancer Awareness, Prevention and Early Detection a trust registered in the year 2014 under the Indian trust Act, CAPED – Cancer Awareness, Prevention and Early Detection, as the name suggests, is a platform created for dissemination of information and awareness about the latest developments in the field of cancer.

CAPED - Cancer Awareness, Prevention and Early Detection has decided to take on the cause of women related cancers with focus on Cervical Cancer to start with. In keeping with this mission we are creating different arenas to spread awareness and knowledge among women so as to empower them to take action regarding their own health.

Why Cervical Cancer?

The 'preventable' cancer Cervical cancer kills more women in India than anywhere in the world. It need not.

Cervical cancer is one of india's many healthcare ironies. It is a disease that experts say can largely be prevented. Yet, in India it affects 1,32,000 women each year of whom 72,000 women lose their battle with it, according to the Cervical Cancer-Free Coalition. With greater awareness,it is possible to miligate the damage done by this continuously-exploding bomb if not completely dismantie it.
