Bhutan Cancer Society and READ Bhutan signed a Memorandum

Bhutan Cancer Society and READ Bhutan signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on 3rd June 2016, witnessed by the Board Directors and employees of the two NGOs. The MOU will serve as “an institutional mechanism for strengthening collaboration and cooperation between the two NGOs” in order to efficiently “deliver preventive health related services in rural Bhutanese communities. As part of the agreement, READ Bhutan will mobilize the rural women while Bhutan Cancer Society will bring in the expertise. We have been partnering with READ Bhutan to create health awareness, especially cancer and other non-communicable diseases, in rural areas since January 2016. With the formal agreement signed, the organizations now plan to carry out health programs in all the nine READ communities.
