The majority of reports of breast cancer research originate from high income countries and their outcomes may not be relevant to clinicians and patients in the less well resourced low and middle income countries (LMCs). This useful site provides access to the titles and abstracts of over 5,000 published reports of breast cancer control research conducted in or relevant to (LMCs) that may otherewise be hard to identify. The Library was built as part of an international collaborative project involving teams at the Breast Global Health Initiative, International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research, and the CDC Foundation and was funded by Komen for Cure and the Office of International Affairs, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda MD.
