Resumen

KOON, Ksenia P; SOLDAK, Tanya  y  GRALOW, Julie R. Breast cancer advocacy: changing perceptions. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2009, vol.51, suppl.2, pp. s323-s328. ISSN 0036-3634.

Breast cancer is a significant health burden worldwide. In the United States, the Breast Cancer Advocacy Movement has increased awareness, enhanced dialogue, and provided significant funding opportunities that previously did not exist. Various advocacy programs are beginning to emerge in developing countries in response to the increasing impact breast cancer is having in these regions of the world. This paper discusses the influence of the Breast Cancer Advocacy Movement in the US and proposes a format for working in conjunction with medical experts, political leaders and patient advocates to stimulate discussion and encourage sustainable outcomes in breast cancer internationally.
