Saving Women’s Lives from Cancer Initiative

August 24, 2020

The Saving Women’s Lives from Cancer Initiative is bringing together representatives from multiple sectors including grant/philanthropic, governments, development agencies and private capital investors to discuss mobilization strategies to both preserve the gains made in women’s cancers and to sustainably support cancer initiatives moving forward. Participants will touch on the role of donor capital in unlocking private resources for addressing women’s cancers and how a blended financing approach can help effectively close the existing funding gap.

This is the second in a series of virtual meetings dedicated to developing a sustainable financing fund to address women’s cancers.
