Examples of our International Funding:

  • Funding of research fellowships through a partnership with the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.

Campaigns and Conferences:

  • Think About the Link® campaign on viruses and cancer launched in January 2016. Phase one will be limited to the U.S., but the plan is for international expansion to countries most affected by cervical cancer, which is the leading cancer killer of women in Central and South America, sub-Saharan Africa and parts of south Asia; and liver cancer, the second leading cancer killer globally.

  • BHE GuideThe Foundation’s Breast Health Education for Young Women Facilitator’s Guide (Educación sobre la salud del seno para las mujeres jóvenes)  is designed to increase young women’s skills and knowledge about breast health. Revised in 2016, this user-friendly educational tool has been used by communities across the globe to reach young women with information about breast health and breast cancer. The guide encourages information-sharing with female relatives who are age-appropriate for screening. In 2017 the Foundation translated the Breast Health Education guide into Spanish for groups in the United States which prefer the Spanish language.

  • The Dialogue for Action® is an annual conference that convenes a diversity of national and international stakeholders committed to realizing the lifesaving potential of cancer screening for all communities. The Dialogue emphasizes evidence-based cancer screening according to guidelines. All participants are encouraged to take the dialogue back to their communities and workplaces to promote appropriate screening.
