Agenda: breast cancer
The Women's Environmental Network in Britain recently coordinated the launch of a National Breast Cancer Coalition, uniting breast cancer groups, health professionals, researchers, sufferers and survivors. Coalition members feel that the disease is, to a large extent, preventable, but has so far only figured on the agenda of some charities and individuals. They are now pushing for a National Action Plan against breast cancer to ensure prevention before cure.
