AAPINAC was created in response to the needs of the growing U.S. Asian American and Pacific Islander populations for breast health and breast cancer information and educational materials that are culturally specific and appropriate.
The council works with Susan G. Komen for the Cure in its efforts to raise awareness among Asian American/Pacific Islander women about screening mammography, monthly breast self-examination, clinical breast examinations, and treatment options for women with breast cancer, and assists Komen for the Cure in its goal to lower the rates of breast cancer mortality and morbidity among Asian American and Pacific Islander women.
