BioAabir Bio-Services Foundation

Aabir Bio-Services Foundation (ABSF) is registered under section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013. ABSF is “not-for-profit” and is independent of commercial and political interests.

The portal was created in the year 2011 to bridge the gap between science and society through continuous public engagement activities and knowledge transfer about common and preventable diseases in women and girls in India.

Cervical Cancer is one of the most common and preventable diseases in women and girls. Persistent and undiagnosed HPV (Human Papillomavirus) infection is mainly responsible for development of cervical cancer.  Prevention of cervical cancer should ideally involve a multi-pronged approach of education, awareness, advocacy, public-private partnerships for vaccination, screening and early treatment of precancerous lesions before they develop into cancer.

Why women and girls ? According to “World Health Organization”, the health of women and girls is of particular concern because in many societies they are disadvantaged by discrimination rooted in socio-cultural factors.
