Spain's 29 regional breast cancer groups tighten awareness efforts:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Throughout October, Spain's 29 regional breast cancer federations are conducting campaigns to raise awareness of the disease and its early diagnosis and management. One such event was the VI breast cancer conference, held yesterday in Ciudad Real, hosted by the Castilla-La Mancha regional association (AMUMA). Such initiatives, co-ordinated by the overarching FECMA federation, are helping to steer significant changes in regional policy on screening. Cancer care has gained significant political weight in Spain's public healthcare agenda: in recent months, a number of regions have extended or considered extending the age range of their programme (see Clinica No 1269, p 4). Some 17,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in Spain annually, according to FECMA.
