Being Informed is Half the Battle Won

The focus of our Women’s Health campaign is mainly on breast & cervical cancers – they’re the most common cancers affecting South African women, with cervical cancer being the leading cause of death for women in developing countries. The incidence of breast cancer among South African women is increasing with women having a one in 29 lifetime risk of being diagnosed and the most common cancer in women of all races and ethnicities. Lindiwe Ntuli-Tloubatla’s knowledge of cancer helped her through her battle with a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer. Read more…

No More Delays Minister Davies – We Need Medicines

27 September 2016: More than a 1 000 activists, CANSA included, from the ‘Fix the Patent Laws Campaign’ will march to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Pretoria, demanding that the DTI take urgent steps to fix SA’s outdated patent laws so that everyone can get the medicines they need. Medicines for cancer are exorbitantly priced. Many aren’t available in the public sector and even private medical aid schemes don’t want to pay for them. It is reprehensible that people cannot access life-saving medicines. The South African government must stand up to the pressure of the multinational pharmaceutical industry and urgently amend these laws.
