Abstract

This plan was introduced for women, so they could protect themselves from unexpected risk particularly breast cancer. The risk is that someone will need to pay an amount of money for cancer treatment when diagnosed during the agreed period. Cancer treatment can be costly, as it involves very expensive modern equipment. Treatment is also repeated. Those who are able will choose private hospitals, for better treatment and more comfort, and these are very costly. Women who join Takaful Hawa will have special treatment in a better place without being worried about the financial cost. The plan also gives further benefits if cancer occurs in such places as the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina or vulva.
