Why are they wearing a mask at the hospital!

These women are waiting for a free of charge cervical cancer test (pap test) which could lead to the early detection of this disease. However, these women chose to wear masks to protect their identities and reduce the potential for gossip and rumor that they may have cancer!

It seems that avoiding “shame” was still very powerful in this rural community!

What did you think?

The hidden identities of both the doctor and patients is an innovative method to treat this type of illness as public embarrassment and prejudice towards modern medical treatments slowly disappears!

I hope that these women will all live a happy and healthy life without any serious medical issues!
