The MOU was signed in connection with the national multi-sectoral prevention plan of the Non-Communicable Diseases 2020-2030.
This collaboration gives those identified in the target group the opportunity to schedule their appointment for the preventive screening quicker and in time. Starting January 2022, the Aruba Health App will be used to spread the message more effectively to the community about how to prevent chronic diseases. For BOB, this means early detection of breast cancer to treat this accordingly and prevent possible complications.
The Aruba Health App will increase the level of service for patients, and through the AHA, BOB clients will have access to the BOB digital system to make their appointment for the screening. It makes it more transparent for the clients as they will have their healthcare in the “palm” of their hands.

Early Breast Cancer screening can prevent long-term complications and even death. It is essential to be proactive when it concerns your health. Minister Dangui Oduber indicated that the Ministry of Health is proactive in introducing these types of innovative solutions for the benefit of the community. The minister praised the hard work of the BOB Foundation for everything they are doing in prevention and care for the community. He is also very grateful to the Department of Public Health DVG and Mr. Lucas, Chairman of BOB. This MOU shows that by working together more can be achieved.
