The second roundtable for our State of the Globe Report: A Women’s Health Agenda will focus on breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women across the world and rates of breast cancer in the developing world are rapidly increasing. While the UK offers solid infrastructure in terms of dealing with breast cancer, this roundtable offers an opportunity to assess how far this work has come and what needs to be done. There is evidence to suggest that mammography screening is not only expensive, but not effective in screening for breast cancer. Low-cost screening approaches can only be developed when necessary evidence becomes available. How can we ensure data and research is focused on alternative ways to screen for breast cancer to improve early detection, which remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control? Beyond the stage of prevention, women face cultural, religious and socioeconomic barriers when facing treatment options such as mastectomies. How can we work to remove the cultural and financial barriers when accessing treatment?
