Organization Description: Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon®, a global partnership fighting women’s cancer, affiliated with the George W. Bush Institute, leads coordinated action to save women and girls’ lives from cancer where the need is greatest. By working with public- and private-sector organizations, Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon builds on the success and lessons of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and with the ongoing commitment of President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush, reaches communities to provide services for the prevention and treatment of women’s cancers. Launched in September 2011, by the Bush Institute, the U.S. Government through PEPFAR, Susan G. Komen® and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon now includes several partner organizations. As a newly formed non-profit, since January 2016, several partners including the Bush Institute, National Breast Cancer Foundation, and Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation have contributed support to ensure Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon’s firm financial footing. With the monetary, in-kind and technical support of our partners, Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon leverages the engagement of national governments, non- governmental organizations, and key local leadership, to result in country-owned, sustainable programs that allow women and girls to access the care they need to thrive. Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon currently supports efforts to combat cervical and/or breast cancer in the Republics of Botswana, Namibia and Zambia; the United Republic of Tanzania; and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

The long-term goals of the program in Africa are to: •Reduce deaths from cervical cancer and breast cancer by promoting early detection and early treatment; •Increase access to HPV vaccination; •Raise awareness of breast and cervical cancer prevention, screening, and treatment, and reduce stigma; and •Create innovative cancer control models that can be scaled up and used globally.
