Global Summit on International Breast Health Targets Breast Health Improvements in Developing Countries, June 9-11, 2010, in Chicago
Date:4/25/2010

ource countries. It will provide a forum to examine and report on the effectiveness of breast health care delivery in diverse socioeconomic settings and to address how existing resources can most effectively be organized to improve outcomes.

Worldwide, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women, responsible for 465,000 deaths in 2007.

The systematic analyses performed during the three-day Summit will be guided by the BHGI resource-sensitive comprehensive breast care guidelines for early detection, diagnosis and treatment (Cancer, Oct. 15, 2008 supplement). Attendees will hear case studies of successful programs from around the world. Special issues of Latin American countries will be highlighted, framed by a special needs survey performed by SLACOM and published with BHGI (Cancer, Oct. 15, 2008 supplement). Model approaches to breast health care improvement will be developed during the event.

Each day of the Summit will address specific health care scenarios:

Day 1 - Low-resource scenarios in breast health care delivery, where fundamental delivery resources are commonly fractionated or incomplete.
Day 2 - Middle-resource scenarios in breast health care delivery, where multidisciplinary treatment is more commonly available than in low-resource countries.
Day 3 - Problem-solving in health care delivery, considering how common obstacles can be tackled in real-world applications in low- and middle-resource environments.
   
Meeting features include international breast cancer advocacy presentations, scientific presentations highlighting health care delivery and successful pilot projects, open panel discussions, parallel workshops and poster presentations.

“The 2010 BHGI Summit will be a very important meeting that is relevant not only to low- and middle-income countries, but to all countries,” said Eduardo Cazap, M.D., president of SLACOM-Sociedad
