Impact

  • In Egypt and other low- to middle-income countries, breast cancer ¬†surveillance systems are currently under development.
  • Grassroots efforts initiated by Middle Eastern universities and health care providers in Egypt to support Egyptian breast cancer¬†surveillance are lacking, and this has caused a bias in the information that has been published on this topic.
  • WAFI is teaming up with DPS and other colleagues to further develop clinical breast cancer surveillance in Egypt.
