MARTINEZ-MONTANEZ, Olga Georgina; URIBE-ZUNIGA, Patricia  e  HERNANDEZ-AVILA, Mauricio. Public policies for the detection of breast cancer in Mexico. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2009, vol.51, suppl.2, pp.s350-s360. ISSN 0036-3634.

Breast Cancer is a significant public health problem associated with epidemiological and demographic transitions that are currently taking place in Mexico. Aging and increased exposure to risk factors are thought to increase breast cancer incidence, having great relevance for the society and health services. Under this scenario, the health system must respond to the growing needs for better breast cancer screening services. In this paper we present an update of breast cancer mortality, general international recommendations for breast cancer screening programs and key aspects of the Mexico Action Program for Breast Cancer Screening and Control 2007-2012. Breast cancer policies are aimed at organizing and increasing the infrastructure to develop a National Program for Detection, Diagnosis and Treatment of Breast Cancer with optimal quality, friendliness and respect for patient's rights.

Palavras-chave : breast neoplasms; breast cancer prevention; health public policy; Mexico.
