Shanghai CDC and Hutchinson Center establish Shanghai Breast Health Resource Center
Date:6/22/2011

SEATTLE The Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Shanghai CDC) and the Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), headquartered at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, jointly will establish the Shanghai Breast Health Resource Center as BHGI's first "learning laboratory" in China. The project is a result of the two organizations formalizing their ongoing relationship by signing a collaboration agreement.

It marks the first such agreement between the Shanghai CDC and a U.S. cancer research center.

Through this agreement, the Shanghai CDC and its partners will work with the BHGI on projects related to cancer control and will provide a comprehensive assessment of breast cancer early detection for the population of Shanghai and the region.

The first project of the Shanghai Breast Health Resource Center, organized as a BHGI Learning Laboratory, will be an evaluation of the effectiveness of clinical breast exam (breast exam performed by a qualified health professional) for breast cancer early detection, based upon breast cancer screening conducted in Shanghai.

BHGI developed the concept of learning laboratories to define the essential science-based clinical elements for breast cancer care programs for low- and middle-resource countries through global collaborations.

"This agreement is an affirmation of the importance that the Hutchinson Center places upon designing programs to impact the prevention, early diagnosis and improved treatment of cancer among medically underserved people around the world," said Larry Corey, M.D, Hutchinson Center president and director. Last October, the Center and the China CDC signed an agreement to provide a framework for scientific research and training projects in the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, infectious diseases and other related health concerns in China.

Breast cancer mortality has nearly doubled during the past 30 years in China, according to
