Although breast cancer is a global disease, beliefs and approaches to its diagnosis and treatment vary greatly, in part due to differences in cultural norms, health care systems, and economic conditions. In this context, no single approach to breast cancer will prove effective around the world. For these reasons, Susan G. Komen® is partnering with local non-profit organizations in communities worldwide to implement innovative programs aimed at increasing awareness, education, screening, and quality access to care. Through local grants we strengthen organizations and networks and replicate successful programs that can be implemented on a larger scale. To date, Komen has awarded more than $31 million for international community education and outreach programs.
