Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths for women globally. In low and middle-income countries (LMICs), where health system resources are limited, women are diagnosed with breast cancer at a later stage and are more likely to die of the disease1.

The Society of Breast Imaging is pleased to announce a collaboration with RAD-AID International to establish the RAD-AID/SBI Global Breast Radiology Program, which is a joint program to increase access to medical imaging services for breast imaging globally. This partnership creates unique and valuable volunteer opportunities for SBI’s 3000+ members within RAD-AID’s established global health programs, inclusive of various education offerings and web conferences within RAD-AID’s regional programs. Apply today for the RAD-AID/SBI Global Breast Radiology Program.

RAD-AID International is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that aims to increase access to radiology and to essential health services in global health. The mission of RAD-AID Breast Imaging is to help improve breast cancer outcomes and survival in women living in low-resource regions of the world by promoting early diagnosis and screening of breast cancer, and to help strengthen the pathway from diagnosis to treatment by engaging multidisciplinary partners in surgery, gynecology, oncology, radiation oncology, pathology and nursing.
