A 10 year Review of Advanced Breast Cancer

To shed light on the challenges and gaps in advanced breast cancer and inspire worldwide change within the breast cancer community, in 2016 ESO worked collaboratively with Pfizer Oncology to provide the Global Status of Advanced / Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) 2005-2015 Decade Report. The report reveals areas of improvement as well as substantial gaps in care, access to resources and support, and treatment outcomes for patients with advanced breast cancer.

A steering committee of global multidisciplinary advanced breast cancer advisors, comprising physicians, leaders of patient-support organizations, and patients, contributed to the development of the report.

In collaboration with ESO, Pfizer provided project management support and strategic coordination, as well as shared analyses and key data on gaps in care identified in the Global Status of MBC Decade Report, which formed the basis of the MBCVision 2025 Call-to-Action.

Pfizer did not develop content for the Call-to-Action, this was determined by consensus from MBC Vision 2025 Taskforce members.

Brain metastases in breast cancer

Considering that nearly one in three individuals with metastatic breast cancer may face brain metastases, our collaboration with Seagen has led to the creation of an informative video about brain metastases. This resource offers valuable insights into how these metastases develop, how to recognize them, and when it's essential to seek guidance from your healthcare providers.

honestly spoken

The ABC Global Alliance has partnered with Sanofi to raise awareness of the burden and unmet needs of people living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) through powerful storytelling, tangible advice and real-world examples. Honestly Spoken focusses on giving voice to the issues that matter most to MBC patients and caregivers through real, unscripted conversations led by patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals and experts from around the world.

hard-to-reach abc/mbc communities toolkit

To address the critical unmet need in access to care for hard-to-reach populations with advanced/ metastatic breast cancer (ABC/MBC), the ABC Global Alliance and Pfizer have collaborated to develop a toolkit of relevant, community-based initiatives and best practice summary documents that aims to drive collaboration across the global ABC/MBC community.

Humanitarian Partnership for Access to Cancer Treatment (PACT)

While breast cancer awareness has significantly increased globally, the urgent needs of individuals living with advanced breast cancer in low-resource countries have been overlooked. We firmly believe that a person's location should not determine their fate when it comes to living with advanced breast cancer and therefore we joined forces with The Max Foundation to provide access to treatment and support for HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer in low- and middle-income countries.

‘count us, know us, join us’ and ‘here & now’ campaigns

Novartis has partnered with organisations around the world to raise awareness of the needs and experiences of people living with advanced breast cancer and to provide disease information to patients and caregivers. One major initiative has been the global "Count Us, Know Us, Join Us" campaign that recognises and supports those living with ABC, as well as their caregivers, supporters, friends, and family members and helps to give them a stronger voice to meet their needs.

The Count Us, Know Us, Join Us survey confirmed that women with ABC feel isolated from the "pink" breast cancer movement that tends to focus on prevention and survivorship, and want to be better understood.

The sister pan-European initiative, "Here & Now" aims to raise awareness of ABC and the realities of living with the disease. Here & Now has uncovered insights into the impact of ABC to understand how barriers to optimal patient care can be overcome in order to improve the level of care and support across Europe.
