Scheme promotes mammography for Italians in Australia

CO.AS.IT, a nonprofit organization in Australia for Italians and Australians of Italian descent, has raised 55,000 Australian dollars (34,000 euros) in support of its 10,000 Italian Roses mammography awareness project, according to an article published online in La Fiamma.

The initiative aims to raise awareness among the more than 10,000 Italian women living in New South Wales who are between the ages of 50 and 74 and who should have received a mammogram but haven't. The project will publicize to as many people as possible that these women now have the right to receive a mammography examination for free and encourage them to do so, according to the organization.

To better reach these women, CO.AS.IT said it has decided to develop a detailed, informative campaign that includes support from the religious community, doctors, associations, and testimonials, La Fiamma reported.
