About the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation (HKBCF)
The HKBCF, founded on 8 March 2005, is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to eliminating the threat of breast cancer to the local community through education, support, research and advocacy via our three key initiatives:
The HKBCF Breast Health Centre (BHC) provides clinical breast examination and quality-assured mammography screening services as well as education talks and information. Services are fee-based but provided free of charge to eligible clients. Since opening in 2011 the BHC has provided breast cancer screening services to over 19,000 women.
HKBCF Breast Cancer Support Centre (BCSC) provides breast cancer patients and their families with access to professionally trained nurses and breast cancer survivors for emotional, information and financial support. So far, more than 3,200 patients have received support from the BCSC, including 89 patients eligible to receive financial assistance for their medication.
The HKBCF Breast Cancer Registry is the most comprehensive and representative data collection and monitoring system for breast cancer in Hong Kong. Findings are published in an annual report and provide insight and evidence to support our advocacy for better prevention, detection and treatment. The Hong Kong Breast Cancer Registry’s Report No. 5, published in September 2013, is based on information collected from over 9,000 breast cancer patients.
The HKBCF is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization registered with the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department (Ref no. 91/7226).
