Susan G. Komen Hosts Global Women’s Cancer Summit on Feb. 4


The first Susan G. Komen Global Women’s Cancer Summit takes place in Washington, DC, on World Cancer Day – Monday, Feb. 4. This inaugural summit brings together world leaders from governments, cancer organizations and the private sector to address the growing global women’s cancer crisis.

Throughout the day, world leaders in health and women’s cancers, experts in technology and innovation, government leaders from low- and middle-income countries, private philanthropic and industry leaders and nonprofit organizations will chart a new global campaign and call to action: “2.5 by 2025.” This goal aspires to enhance breast cancer outcomes, as measured by survival and quality of life, for at least 2.5 million women in low- and middle-income countries by the year 2025.
