ng breast health awareness and access to detection and

treatment of breast cancer;

-- Building infrastructure;

-- Recruitment and staffing in specialized fields like oncology and

radiology;

-- Services to breast cancer survivors and their families;

-- Recruitment and training of lay ambassadors to promote breast cancer

awareness and treatment messages in underserved areas.

The launch of Komen for the Cure's Global Promise Fund will strengthen the organization's growing presence throughout the world. Last year, during Komen's first-ever Global Advocate Summit in Budapest, Hungary, Komen launched a 10-country pilot program, The Global Initiative for Breast Cancer Awareness, to assist countries in decreasing breast cancer mortality rates. Countries participating in this initiative include Brazil, Costa Rica, Ghana, India, Jordan, Mexico, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Global Promise Fund will be formally introduced to the Washington, D.C. diplomatic community on March 12 at a luncheon in Washington, D.C. where Dr. Samia Al-Amoudi, advisor to the Saudi Cancer Society and a pioneer in efforts on behalf of Saudi women with breast cancer, will detail her partnership with Komen in Saudi Arabia. A breast cancer survivor, Dr. Al-Amoudi was among the first female medical graduates from King Abdulaziz University in 1981. In 2007, the U.S. Department of State named her the first international recipient of the Woman of Courage Award in recognition of her breast cancer awareness campaign and for sharing her personal story.
