Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon was pleased to host Her Excellency the First Lady of Mozambique, Dra. Isaura Nyusi, this morning at the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon offices.

Dra. Nyusi has been an advocate for women’s health in Mozambique and has spoken about the importance of HPV vaccination, cervical cancer screening and treatment, and breast cancer screenings. We were thrilled to speak to Dra. Nyusi and her team about the work we have done over the past five years in cervical and breast cancer control in Sub-Saharan Africa. We thank Dra. Nyusi and her staff for an excellent meeting as Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon looks to new opportunities in our next five years!
