The Problem

In India, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 4 minutes and a woman dies of breast cancer every 8 minutes.

The high mortality rate is due to a lack of awareness and delay in screening and diagnosis.

Awareness, Screening & Early Detection can save millions of female lives.

Our Goal

We aim to conduct breast cancer screening of 1 million women by 2025, ensuring the following objectives are met:

  • Create awareness on the risks of breast cancer as well as promote self-breast examination
  • Ensure early detection of breast cancer and timely treatment.
  • Provide innovative health intervention in the Indian context.
  • Enable strong partnerships with government and private stakeholders to strengthen the National Cancer Control Programme in India.

We believe it is achievable, if we work together!

Our Process is easily scalable
and sustainable

There are three essential steps:


Awareness and behavior change communication are the first steps of disease investigation in women. The style of education is particularly designed to suit the community’s needs, providing preliminary knowledge about the disease, its risk factors, self- breast examination, and the importance of screening. are all essential for tackling this issue. The goal is to ensure breast health knowledge and practices become a part of the lifestyle of every woman and thus promote good health.


Every woman should undergo breast screening once a year as common practice. To make this a routine activity, it is important that the screening is made available in a way that is acceptable, accessible, and affordable to the beneficiary. Studies worldwide have shown that screening for breast cancer has resulted in lowering the mortality rate in a woman and thereby increasing their survival rate to a large extent.


To provide end-to-end support in our fight against breast cancer, it is necessary to offer last-mile delivery by linking the beneficiaries to treatment services, counsel them, ensure follow-up and keep all channels of feedback open to strengthen the model and adapt to the needs of its beneficiaries. In a difficult situation, it is our responsibility to empower women to destigmatize breast health and put their health needs first and live a healthy and dignified life.
