We developed an app and film for the poorest and illiterate women in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Israel-Palestine. Due to lack of purchasing power they have been neglected by any health system and the pharma industry.
Very often they have 10 children and more and when they finally realize that there is something wrong with their breast the disease has often already progressed. Then they sometimes approach our partners with one US-Dollar for the treatment which they borrowed from their whole family.
Too many women we talk to still believe that breast cancer is something like a flu which will pass, others believe it is contagious. Since there is no preventing medicine for breast cancer, we need to do everything possible that every woman has basic medical knowledge what breast cancer is and understands the powerful and cheap resource which is called self-examination.
Our app will provide all information fully spoken and in films which will enable women who cannot read to execute self-examination on a regular basis and possibly prevent the death of thousands of poor and illiterate women and mothers, who are often the sole providers for their children.
