IAEA Joins With Breast Health Global Initiative in Fight Against Cancer

The IAEA’s Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) and the Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI) have agreed to join forces in the fight against cancer in the developing world.

“Together, our organizations will be able to maximize results through targeted programs to extend our reach, progress and, ultimately, achieve concrete outcomes, while leveraging dollars invested by all parties,” said Dr. Anderson.

BHGI began work in Ghana through a collaboration with HopeXchange, a non-profit international humanitarian organization which has initiated the well received Ghana Health Project and organized the Ghana Breast Cancer Alliance (GBCA) under the direction of Dr. Riccardo Masetti, Professor of Surgery at the Catholic University in Rome. Through its joint venture with HopeXchange and the GBCA, BHGI was able to develop and test the first international Learning Laboratory in Kumasi, Ghana.
