The Global Initiative for Breast Cancer Awareness in Egypt is a USAID-funded program managed by the Institute of International Education (IIE) West Coast Center in collaboration with the IIE MENA Region Office, local partners, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The primary goal of the Global Initiative is to create a dynamic global network of dedicated activists with the skills, knowledge and vision to play a strategic role in shaping their country’s response to breast cancer. The primary components of the Initiative are the Course for the Cure™ (CFTC), a Community Educator Program, and community grants and related trainings. The CFTC focuses on five thematic areas: Community Assessment, Volunteer and Organization Development, Awareness & Education, Fundraising, and Advocacy. Target communities include Greater Cairo, the Delta (Alexandria), and Upper Egypt (Luxor).
