Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® Progress Reports

Beginning with a baseline report in May 2011, NBCC will issue Annual Progress Reports about Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®. These reports, which summarize the state of breast cancer—as well as the status of NBCC’s work to achieve its mission to end breast cancer—will hold us and the entire breast cancer community accountable to Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.

This first Progress Report, Ending Breast Cancer: A Baseline Status Report, gives an overview of the state of breast cancer today, and describes NBCC’s initial efforts to refocus action towards knowing how to end the disease by the end of the decade. With a review of breast cancer trends, research, advocacy and public policy, this report sheds light on the reality of breast cancer, and offers an advocate perspective on barriers that have hindered progress.

The second Progress Report, issued in August 2012, provides an update with the latest data on breast cancer incidence and mortality; information on public policy and advocacy; a look at the current research priorities as demonstrated by research funding; an analysis of the breast cancer conversation in the media during 2011 National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; and finally, an update on Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® activities.

Future annual reports will track progress and how NBCC is moving toward achieving Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.
