Advocate for Change

Susan G. Komen’s national advocacy agenda includes issues important to the breast cancer community, including:

  • Protecting federal funding for the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), to ensure all women have access to potentially lifesaving breast cancer screening;
  • Ensuring continued federal investment in biomedical research through the National Institutes of Health (NIH); and
  • Requiring insurance companies to provide coverage for oral anti-cancer drugs on a basis that is no less favorable than what’s already provided for intravenously administered chemotherapy, to protect patients from high out-of-pocket costs.
