Nonprofit Overview

Mission: The Global Breast Care Initiative strives to combine knowledge compassion, resources, and technology to better the lives of girls and women around the world.

Results: The World Health Organization defines breast screening as critical for early detection. But mammography is not always an option in low-resource environments. Even in developed countries, many women go without breast scanning and health services. With the assistance of new technology, the Global Scanning Project partners with local communities and organizations to provide low cost and free breast health services.

Target demographics: to improve access to affordable breast care.

Geographic areas served: We work worldwide through area specific projects

Programs: the Global Scanning Project & Global Breast Prosthesis Project
