Advancing early detection of breast cancer in resource- limited settings – Workshop Report

On the occasion of the 2022 World Cancer Congress, UICC and the World Health Organization (WHO) hosted a three-hour workshop to support progress in advancing the early detection of breast cancer in resource-limited settings.

Many cases of cancer in lower-income regions are diagnosed at an advanced stage, when they are much harder to treat effectively. Improving the early detection of breast cancer will contribute to saving 2.5 million lives by 2040 according to the targets laid out by the WHO Global Breast Cancer Initiative (GBCI).
