Cost-effectiveness and equity impact of breast cancer control in developing countries

This project aims to assist nine developing countries in planning and/or further improving the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of their breast cancer control programmes. The project is funded by the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation, and will be carried out in collaboration with WHO and Erasmus University.

The specific objectives of the project are 1) to optimize breast cancer control programmes by providing evidence based information on breast cancer interventions that give the greatest benefit for cost, 2) to improve the knowledge base of breast cancer control programs through capacity building on cost-effectiveness analysis and breast cancer policy decision making and 3) to increase awareness on breast cancer control through the participation of key stakeholders and experts in the program planning, implementation and reporting, both at the national and international arenas.

The project runs from 2009-2012.
