On September 29 2013, Peace and Love Hospitals and BCI joined over eighty countries around the world to host the Globeathon event to End Women Cancers. Globeathon was a call for advocacy groups, healthcare professionals, survivors, government officials and policy makers and the lay public to unify their global efforts in a common goal of fostering public awareness and education about women cancers.
Through our efforts breast cancer management in Ghana and community awareness has improved through the support of the media, physicians, and NGOs. Nowadays, patients are more aware of the curative and palliative treatments available and the need for early diagnosis and treatment. As a result, the number of people who turn up for medical consultation with early symptoms of cancer is increasing, patients are living longer, and cancer survivor groups such as the Peace and Love Survivors Association are being inaugurated with hundreds of members.
