The Syrian Breast Disease Association is preparing with local partners to launch Akbar, a free awareness and screening campaign for the early detection of breast cancer in Syria, according to the organizers.

October and the Pink Ribbon have been associated with breast cancer awareness for about a quarter of a century to raise global awareness of the most common cancer among women, with 2 million new cases worldwide recorded in 2018, according to the Global Fund for Cancer Research.

Breast cancer is classified locally as the most common cancer among women by 30 percent according to the National Cancer Registry at the Ministry of Health, with a positive indicator that Syria is absent from the list of the world’s top 25 countries with new infections.
