Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon tackles the challenges of breast and cervical cancers with a multi-partner, multi-sector collaboration focused on advancing prevention, screening, and treatment for cervical cancer, and early detection and treatment for breast cancer, with locally adapted solutions in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.

Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon works with national governments, non-governmental (NGO) and multilateral organizations, the private sector, and key in-country leadership. Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon partners deliver services on the ground in each of our countries of engagement, with the coordination and technical assistance of a small headquarters staff.

We are proud to harness the power of partnerships in ever-evolving ways to reduce the burden of women’s cancers. New partners from a wide variety of fields and sectors are joining our efforts. We’re exploring how to maximize the contributions of each existing and potential new partner for the benefit of girls and women in our countries of focus and beyond.
