Breast cancer is the most common cancer worldwide. Major global inequalities in distribution and access to optimal breast cancer care has been highlighted by the WHO. In light of this and in the spirit of the political commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda, the WHO launched the Global Breast Cancer Initiative in 2021 with the final goal of empowering women worldwide and strengthening breast cancer control.
As part of our role in promoting progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, BMC Cancer has curated a collection of articles that emphasize the importance of efficient global breast cancer screening programs and early diagnosis to reduce health disparities and promote breast cancer control worldwide.
