Currently cancer is considered a fatal disease, especially in Viet Nam and in most parts of the world, when the mortality rate is very high, nearly 70 per cent.
“Cancer prevention from the root” is a community project on global health care, which has been successfully implemented by iCareBase in many countries around the world with the aim of raising community awareness, about how to proactively prevent cancer and to minimise cancer-related deaths based on the Human Genome Program founded by Professor, Dr. Kampon Sriwatanakul.
Accordingly, the “Human Genome Program” applies gene decoding technology to help early screening of risk causes of 26 types of cancer and chronic diseases in men, and 27 types of cancer and chronic diseases in women. Genetic screening results along with expert psychological, nutritional, and lifestyle counseling programs will help customers actually have a “lifetime map” that leads to a healthy life, and an active plan to prevent cancer from root.
The event in Ha Noi was honored to welcome the representative of United Nations’ Economic Council, Excellency Aurora Aquino, Chairman of Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Vu Tien Loc and Deputy Minister of Home Affairs, Mr. Nguyen Trong Thua.
