OECS Commission Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The OECS Commission has joined thousands of organizations globally in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to highlight the importance of early detection, education and research in combating one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers among women.

The Commission has partnered with Massey Stores and other businesses in supporting initiatives to encourage greater awareness of breast cancer and to encourage those with any concerns to seek early screening.

Project Management Specialist and OECS Social Committee organizer, Lisa James said it was important that people were aware that Breast Cancer could affect anyone and that the month of October was also about educating the public as to what treatments and support systems were available.

“The OECS Social Committee organizes a range of activities to encourage healthy lifestyles in recognition of the importance of preventative health measures and we take this opportunity to encourage all sectors of the community to become more aware of Breast Cancer, to ask questions and to unite in the fight against this disease”, said Lisa James.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
