"Primary prevention courses for girls living in areas with higher risk of breast cancer"
|The project should
identify a certain number of geographical regions in the European Union presenting higher breast cancer rates due to identifiable
environmental factors. The selection of the pilot areas to implement the project should keep a geographical diversity and
include several Member States. |
The key objective of this pilot project is to establish the scientific evidence for environmental problems in relation to areas with higher breast cancer rates, with the aim to improve the situation for the citizens living in this area in a cross-sectorial manner.
Priority in the analysis and on the actions to be proposed should be given to youngest cohorts of age in full compatibility and complementary with the European Union breast cancer policy on prevention and early detection of breast cancer. The project will focus on soil and water contamination by polluting agents and include specifically illegal disposal of toxic waste as well as on industrial areas. The pilot project is targeted at areas, as described above, where breast cancer incidence rates are statistically much higher than average.
The project will be carried out in form of a study in order to review the evidence of polluting agents and their impact on health, specifically breast cancer with full scientific justification of any action proposed.
