COCOBOD MARKS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Date: 12th October 2023

Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), in its effort to extend its focus beyond the production, processing and marketing of cocoa, is stepping into the forefront of advocacy, dedicating its resources and influence to shine a spotlight on breast health. This move underscores COCOBOD’s commitment not only to the cocoa industry but also to the well-being of the communities it serves.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, COCOBOD has initiated various awareness campaigns and collaborations aimed at educating its stakeholders and the public about the importance of breast health. As part of the campaign, COCOBOD has embarked on a social media campaign across all its platforms to promote breast health and to ensure that its stakeholders are well-informed about the risks of breast cancer, symptoms, and preventive measures.

Additionally, COCOBOD in conjunction with its healthcare arm, Cocoa Clinic, is offering free breast cancer screenings across all branches of the clinic for employees, stakeholders, farmers and the general public. This strategic effort aims to raise awareness about breast cancer, promote the significance of early detection, and educate individuals on the importance of regular check-ups and healthy lifestyles to prevent cancer.

COCOBOD is also incorporating pink-themed elements into its corporate identity for the month, to visually signify its commitment to supporting breast cancer awareness. Employees across the divisions and subsidiaries will be wearing pink on dedicated days to show their support for the fight against breast cancer and to celebrate and encourage survivors. 

Breast Cancer Awareness Month serves as a reminder that collective efforts can make a significant impact in the fight against breast cancer and COCOBOD’s commemoration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a testament to its commitment to social responsibility. Through a multifaceted approach, COCOBOD is not only tending to the well-being of farmers and other stakeholders but is also championing a cause that transcends the boundaries of agriculture.

The fight is a shared responsibility. Let's support it. Get screened now and stay healthy.
