The World Health Organization (WHO) has appointed Ambassador Nancy Goodman Brinker, Founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a breast cancer foundation, as WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control.
As Goodwill Ambassador, Ambassador Brinker is expected to raise awareness about cancer as a global public health problem. She will also advocate for strengthening global action for cancer prevention and control in the context of the Global Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases endorsed by the World Health Assembly in May 2008. Her messages will emphasize the need for low- and middle income countries to strengthen comprehensive and evidence-based cancer control policies and programmes.
