The ultimate goal of BCI is to reduce the number of women who present with late stage disease at diagnoses through community outreach and education in the following objectives:

  • Strengthen breast cancer awareness by way of outreach educational programs while conducting free breast screening campaigns in local community groups, faith based organizations, educational institutions, and civic organizations

  • Educate and counsel women diagnosed with breast cancer on availability of different and modern types of breast cancer treatment options

  • Establishment of training programs for peer navigators and voluntary workers who provide outreach homecare services to breast cancer patients in their communities

  • Establish breast care centers throughout the country where breast cancer patients and survivors can get together to share and exchange information, ideas, and provide support for each other

  • Provide training to healthcare professionals in oncology especially in the area of breast cancer

Over the past twelve years, BCI has been conducting outreach programs for women, especially those in deprived communities by educating and screening the public for signs of breast cancer while increasing community awareness to help downstage the disease at diagnosis. BCI has also been expanding the availability of clinical and diagnostic breast examination and screening while advocating for systemic change so that more women have access to quality care and treatment.
