On the occasion of the International Day against breast cancer, yesterday Tuesday, October 19, 2021, the leading cause of death from cancer in women in the world, the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) salutes the courage of all women and men (rare, less than 1% of all breast cancers affect men) around the world who are fighting this disease, especially those in Haiti.
