The meeting's agenda includes debates on Risk Factors and Early Diagnosis, Treatment of Women Suffering from Breast Cancer, Breast Cancer in Elderly Patients and the Importance of Nurses' Work, among other topics.
Cuba has developed the project "Alas por la Vida" (Wings for Life), which was founded in 2003 and promotes activities with women who have undergone breast surgery.
The patients involved in the project meet every two months to receive information about such aspects as sexuality, divorce and its incidence, diet and alternative medicine.
