The meeting was organized in a connection to the International Women's Day being observed on March 8, all around the world. The meeting was organized by a private group.

Rizwana gave a brief explanatory statement about Cervical Cancer, its effects on daily life and measures for prevention. She stated that the cause of the cancer can be determined timely. She added that the treatment of the same is possible.

She recommended a proper infrastructure for conducting Papsmear tests on a regular basis. She disclosed that people in the developed country have to undergo a similar test after every three years but no such provisions are provided by the government in Pakistan yet.
