Situation in Place
Every year, 6000 women and 60 men in Switzerland are diagnosed with breast cancer. Even though access to medical treatment is very good in Switzerland, around 2-3 people die from the disease every day. "Most women delegate breast cancer screening in Europe to the gynaecologist, whom they may visit annually. This is not enough," says Sonja Dinner, Founder of the DearMamma Initiative. She therefore appeals to women's self-responsibility: "There is a simple method that is free and equally effective for women all over the world. The regular and systematic self-check," explains Dinner.
