Dr Abigail Rembui Anak Jerip

Dr Abigail Rembui Anak Jerip is an obstetrician and gynaecologist by practice. Through her research and cases she addresses at Sarawak General Hospital, as a mother, she knows more needs to be done to reduce high cervical and breast cancer prevalence in Sarawak.

Dr Abigail Rembui founded Pink & Teal EmpowHer, a non-governmental charity organisation established to increase awareness and screen women in rural Sarawak for breast and cervical cancer. Offering a one-stop solution, Pink & Teal EmpowHer has been able to screen more than a thousand women which was said to be 10 times more than the KPI of health clinics since 2018.

The NGO is moving forward with the support of Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, soon, a one-stop solution bus providing health care services to rural women in Sarawak is set to operate. Dr Abigail has also collaborated with Unimas to carry out cervical and breast cancer screening in the rural areas of Sarawak.

It’s not so much of what it means to me, but what it means for the women we reach with our good work. Imagine being able to prevent cancer is a woman who otherwise never ever even thinks of getting a simple test. And it’s not a simple mathematical output of preventing one case of cancer in one woman in=one life but we prevent cancer in all the person’s this one woman is as a wife, mother, daughter and contributor to the workforce.
