About The Webinar

The South African Government states that the incidence of breast cancer among women in the country is increasing, and is one of the most common cancers among women in the country. It is the most prevalent cancer amongst white and Asian women and the second most common cancer among black and coloured women (cervical cancer is the most common cancer among black South African women).

No one is alone — everyone has the right to access crucial sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. These services are central to women’s health, who have the right to early diagnosis and treatment of reproductive health illnesses such as breast and cervical cancers. 

To commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness in October, join us at the live webcast brought to you by Global Health Strategies. Experts and a survivor will share insights on breast and cervical cancers. Whether you just want to learn more about these diseases, have been diagnosed, have been receiving treatment or are supporting someone going through it, we aim to address the pertinent issues, experiences and implications, clarify any misconceptions or doubts, and highlight support and resources that are available to you, your friends and your family. ​​​​​​​
