About Us

Care. Organization. Public Enlightenment. {C.O.P E.} was founded in 1995. It is a well established, registered not for-profit, Non- Governmental Organization dedicated to reducing the mortality rate of breast cancer through advocacy, treatment, research and education. We must bear in mind that it is the most dangerous disease of women in Nigeria.

Over the years, C.O.P E. has been at the forefront of fighting breast cancer. We have however recently broken new grounds into other areas of reproductive system i.e. Cervical and Prostate Cancer

We are also a member of the Union for International Cancer Control {UICC} which is the umbrella organization for Cancer worldwide in Geneva, Switzerland.

In the course of our work, we have been collaborating with individuals, corporate organizations and the government in creating awareness.

We have sponsored many indigents for breast cancer treatments and over 12,000 women. We offer subsidized breast ultrasound scan combined with clinical breast examination every 3rd Saturday of the month to the general public and profit making organizations.

With the donation of two state of the art digital breast ultrasound scan machines by Polaris Bank Plc, we provide a more regular and consistent free breast examination to the general public

Through our collaboration with the government and corporate organizations, we are trying to ensure that the minimum health care system is available and accessible to every Nigerian citizen.

We also believe that preventive measure is a lot cheaper than curative.
