Breast cancer in India and mobile health interventions

Press/Media: Expert comment


Breast cancer is a growing epidemic in India. It could kill 76,000 women a year by 2020, according to a recent study. It claimed more than 70,000 lives in 2012. At the heart of the issue is the country’s rapid economic development, which has made Indian women more susceptible to the disease, without building the infrastructure to prevent and detect it. But the good news is mobile health interventions are boosting breast cancer awareness and encouraging early detection could play a significant role in reducing it.
