The Network of Breast Cancer Centres
Breast Centres Network is the first international network of clinical centres exclusively dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. It is a project of ESO (European School of Oncology) with the aim to promote and improve breast cancer care in Europe and throughout the world.
Our network includes Breast Units (Multidisciplinary Breast Centres) that fulfill minimum requirements (see Eligibility Gate) to be considered referral centres. Organisation of Multidisciplinary Breast Units is recommended by EUSOMA, Europa Donna (European Breast Cancer Coalition) and the European Parliament. In the US, breast center accreditation is offered by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
We offer an online Breast Unit Directory that provides detailed information at a glance about our members in an attempt to broadcast the state-of-the-art international standards for multidisciplinary breast cancer care.
"All women across the world should have access to fully equipped, quality assured, dedicated Breast Centers/Units, that provide competent and comprehensive care"
