Globally, breast cancer is the most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer death among women (WHO, n.d.). Women in low-and-middle-income countries are disproportionately affected by breast cancer, due to inequities in breast health care.
RAD-AID is proud to have collaborated with Breast Course for Nurses (BCN), a South African non-profit, on an open-source publication for healthcare workers in low-resource settings that provide breast care navigation so that individuals are referred for timely access to diagnostic and treatment options. This resource addresses the WHO Global Breast Cancer Initiative’s pillars of Health Promotion for Early Detection, Timely Diagnosis, and Comprehensive Breast Cancer Management (WHO, 2022) by providing guidance to healthcare workers for improving breast health outcomes.
