[Call to register] Webinar: Are we on track to reduce breast cancer deaths by one-third by 2030?

[Watch recording or listen to podcast] Breast cancer is the most common, killer cancer in women. 'Men have breasts too' and less than 1% of breast cancer occur in men. If urgent measures are not taken, in next decade: 19.7 million cases of breast cancer will occur and 5.8 million women will die. But governments have promised to deliver on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, one of which is to reduce the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like breast cancer by one-third.

Are we on track to reduce these preventable deaths? Are we diagnosing breast cancer early enough to have better treatment outcome and 5-year survival? Are we optimally engaging survivors to help support those undergoing breast cancer treatment? What more needs to happen so that governments deliver on SDGs by 2030 (or earlier!)?

Let us listen to experts from the NCD Alliance, Endocrine and Breast Cancer Surgery Department of King George's Medical University (KGMU) and a cancer survivor from the Male Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) on a range of issues around breast cancer.
