As part of the opening ceremony of #AORTIC2019, UICC's President, Princess Dina Mired, was proud to announce the launch of the UICC & African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer publication 'Cancer Control in Africa: Paving the way for Universal Health Coverage'. The publication gives an advocacy and policy perspective on the status of national #cancer control planning in the African region with a view to include cancer in universal health coverage plans across the region. http://ow.ly/XDvS50x3oFS
Free Breast Cancer Screening
We were privileged to host colleagues from Winship Cancer Institute, Atlanta, Georgia. They observed our education and screening program. Over 10,000 women in West Africa have benefited from this program. In this 10th Anniversary of @rfcang we will continue to provide this support with help from wonderful partners like you and @shoprite_ng. #Morethanarun #ittakesateam#smallstepsbigdifference #strongertogether #legacy #uhc#educatescreentreat #earlydetectionsaveslives #treatmentforall#iamandiwill

Patient Navigation Program
Our patient navigator program (PNP) is the first of its kind in Lagos. The PN is the number one advocate of the patient and helps her navigate through the scary and sometimes unpredictable medical system in Nigeria, by breaking down barriers to accessing treatment. Click here to learn more or call our PN line at 0817 000 1235.
Since 2009, Run For a Cure Africa has been fighting breast cancer in Nigeria. Operating a nonprofit in one of the most dynamic countries in the world has not been easy but it's been worth it. The last year has presented its own set of challenges but because of our partnerships and a great deal of faith and dedication we are #stillherestillrunning. Read about some of our key partners.
