Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide. It also affects men. However, breast cancer is just one of many breast conditions which may require diagnosis and treatment. Access to comprehensive breast care services is extremely limited in South Africa. Further, little information exists as to the prevalence and epidemiology of breast masses in HIV-infected women and men across the country. HE2RO is partnering with the Breast Care Clinic at Helen Joseph Hospital, Right To Care and the Clinical HIV Research Unit on research that will provide a cross-sectional look at breast conditions in the clinic’s patient population, which includes HIV-positive individuals. The study will also provide cost data on the diagnosis and treatment of breast conditions this low-resourced setting.
