The BJP Doctor Cell conducted 17 cervical cancer examination camps at different places in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on Nov 21, 2014. A total of 1,140 women were examined and 854 pap smear slides were sent to the Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute. Of these, 800 reports were sent back after the cytopathology department had checked the slides. However, 52 slides were rejected. The project was carried out to bring about awareness about cervical cancer and to encourage women to get themselves tested regularly.
