ICYMI: Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon Featured in the Millennium Development Goals Review

June 27, 2012 2 minute Read by Hannah Abney

The Bush Center’s Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon (PRRR) was recently featured in the Millennium Development Goals review. The article, “Helping Address Women’s Cancer Needs In The Developing World includes an interview with Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon Executive Director Doyin Oluwole and emphasizes the importance of the mission of Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon, an innovative partnership to leverage public and private investments in global health to combat cervical and breast cancer in developing nations in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon is part of the Bush Center’s Global Health initiative. The Bush Center partnered with the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) to expand the availability of cervical cancer prevention, screening and treatment and to promote breast cancer education. Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon launched in September 2011 and started expanded cancer screening services in Zambia, Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon’s first partner country.
