Roche: Changing the face of Breast Cancer in Africa

In Africa, 1 in 2 women die five years after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. Improving standard of care through focused investments into the broader context of women’s health has the potential to improve survival to 80-90%; these life years saved have positive GDP effects, making breast cancer an important disease to be integrated into UHC. There is a clear need for system strengthening and investment in NCD initiatives, specifically breast cancer, through the UHC frameworks which will require efficient partnerships. 

This side-event will bring together critical stakeholders with an intention to share with each other insights from unique initiatives in the Continent and explore new trends and opportunities for partnerships to enable the inclusion of breast cancer in UHC.
