As part of Women's March 2009, Alliance Francaise, the University of Hyderabad, Moving Images and Goethe-Zentrum are conducting a talk on
women's health. This session is dedicated exclusively to create knowledge and understanding in the field of women's health, a theme that is still a taboo for women and suffers neglect in both, private and public spheres.
2 of the city's leading medical practitioners, Dr.. Rooma Sinha (Gynecologist) and Dr. P Raghu Ram (Breast Cancer Specialist), will address issues, particularly of cervical and breast cancer, to equip individuals for early detection, and for living with the medical condition. The sessions will be held in Telugu, Urdu, Hindi and English.
