Recommitting to Saving Women from Cancer on World Cancer Day

February 4, 2012 by Eric G. Bing

Over 85% of all cervical cancer deaths occur in developing countries and many of these lives could be saved if women had access to simple and inexpensive pre-cervical cancer screening and treatment. Even more could be saved if girls had access to vaccinations against the human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes cervical cancer.  For this reason, the Bush Institute recently launched Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon to combat cervical cancer and raise awareness for breast cancer in Africa and Latin America, in partnership with other public and private partners.

On World Cancer Day, the George W. Bush Institute honors people throughout the world who are bravely battling cancer, celebrates the compassion and dedication of people and organizations working together to support them, and recommits to combating these often preventable and treatable diseases.
