Did You Know?

The Amigas Américas Exams Donation Programme is present in all regions of Brazil.

The Americas Amigas Examination Donation Programme was created in 2015 to provide women in situations of social vulnerability with access to early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Today, this program benefits women in all regions of Brazil.

In addition to mammography, ultrasound, MRI, puncture, biopsy and anatomopathological and immunohistochemical analyses are also donated to the Program. The exams are performed in partner hospitals and clinics.

The donation also takes place during the "Women Friends" campaigns, actions in which the exams are carried out in a mobile unit (truck) taken to regions with repressed demand or where women have difficulty in accessing these exams.

Americas Amigas has two other pillars of action which are: Equipment and Supplies Donation Program, Capacity Building and Training Program, all permeated by campaigns that take place throughout the year and promote information about breast cancer and the importance of mammography, a test that contributes to the disease being diagnosed still in early stages, when the chances of cure can reach 95%.
