Resumen

STEYN, A; DU PLESSIS, J  y  MEYER, S. ABC - Advocates for Breast Cancer. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.5, pp. 385-385. ISSN 2078-5135.

Breast and cervical cancer are leading causes of cancer-related mortality in South African women. Early detection of breast cancer is imperative to improve survival rates. However, public awareness is lacking and healthcare facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of the disease, particularly in the public sector, are inadequate. A cancer alliance, Advocates for Breast Cancer (ABC), was formed in 2014 to campaign for a national breast healthcare policy for South Africa to prioritise the management of this disease.
