In 2012, Partners In Health helped open the national Cancer Center of Excellence at the Butaro Hospital in Rwanda. In 2013, they opened Butaro Ambulatory Cancer Center (BACC), which is designed to treat cancer patients who need regular IV chemotherapy but who don’t need to be admitted into the hospital.

This facility and other efforts by PIH in Rwanda are starting to change breast cancer from an automatic death sentence to a survivable disease. Prior to their efforts, diagnosis only came in the later, most often fatal stages of the disease. Treatment was difficult for many women to receive due to lack of facilities.

“The only way to make deaths from cancer drop is to integrate prevention, diagnosis, and care,” PIH co-founder Paul Farmer told a group gathered for the opening celebration of the BACC. “Bringing those three things together is doable. It will be done here in Rwanda, and it will light the way for other countries around the world, not just in Africa.”

Your click today helped PIH continue this important effort in the fight against breast cancer.

I do this every day. My mum was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The prognosis for her is good as it was caught early and doesn't seem very virulent. I would love for everyone to have the same treatment she's getting, for every country to have its own National Health Service.
