Breast Cancer Prevention Month / Online Toolkit

Let’s widen the debate on breast cancer risk factors and get urgent action on environmental and occupational links to breast cancer.

From Pink to Prevention has brought together a wide range of experts and activists from around the world to produce an interactive poster designed to tell you all the things you need to know about  the issue. It’s an accessible summary of what’s going on, why we need to call it out and who we need to put the pressure on to get primary prevention on the agenda. Primary prevention means stopping the disease before it starts. (Prevention is sometimes wrongly confused with early detection).

Do share!
