Women will be able as well to get access to counseling through home visits, which will be coupled with implementing awareness activities to guide women to undergo early detection of breast cancer.

The opening of this new mobile mammography unit will serve the purpose of materializing the main objectives of the Jordan Breast Cancer program namely promoting health awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection, correcting misconceptions, and changing behaviors, through various informative and educational tools and materials, in addition to opening the doors for workers in civil society organizations to obtain the necessary training to become specialized coordinators and qualified workers in the field of breast cancer awareness.
