Breast cancer is the most common cause of death by cancer worldwide. It is a disease that affects women regardless of their race, ethnicity, age, or occupation. It strikes women of all age groups, with the incidence increasing among postmenopausal women.
The Patient Welfare Programme and Patients' Behbud Society at AKUH provide financial assistance to women who are fighting breast cancer and need support. This assistance extends access to quality care to women from the poorest sectors in the country.
