Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon by the Numbers
Today marks World Health Day, an annual recognition of the founding of the World Health Organization and an opportunity to draw attention to important health issues facing the world each year.
Cervical and breast cancer are now the most common cancers in women around the world. The Bush Institute’s flagship global health program is Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon, a public-private partnership to save women from cervical and breast cancer in sub-Saharan Africa. Women living with HIV are four-to-five-times more likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer, and while cervical cancer is preventable and treatable, it is still the number-one cancer killer of women in sub-Saharan Africa.
On this World Health Day, take a look at Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon by the numbers. It’s a reminder of the impact just one partnership can have and the work that still must be done.
