Susan G. Komen for the Cure Launches Unprecedented Global Expansion Program in 10 Countries
Date:9/29/2007

he global expansion program with $3 million in this first phase alone. The modules have been adapted for cultural sensitivity in each country and will develop into institutional knowledge that will be sustainable long into the future. A few other countries will be announced shortly.

"Public education and awareness initiatives lead to earlier breast cancer detection, when the disease is most treatable," said Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. "Susan G. Komen for the Cure's experience over the past 25 years funding education, screening, treatment and advocacy grants in more than 50 countries has demonstrated the positive impact grassroots outreach has on saving women's lives. Now it is time to move beyond grants and help create infrastructures around the world that can further the global breast cancer movement and save more lives." The countries were selected in collaboration with the State Department, based on data from the World Health Organization and information from Komen's grant funding in more than 50 countries. Komen has tapped the Institute of International Education to be the implementing partner in this program.

"We want to share the practices we have developed and implemented over the past 25 years in the U.S. with nations where breast cancer advocacy, training and awareness are still in its infancy," said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. "We recognize that in many of the pilot countries people are still struggling with basic health needs. However, the 10 countries participating in this effort are already making strides in breast cancer awareness and outreach, have economic and political environments favorable to success and are seeking to bring breast cancer to their local and national policy agendas. We will support their efforts through funding and sharing proven outreach strategies as well as co-producing knowledge that will save lives."
