Think Pink Europe

Breast Cancer in Europe

In Europe, we have 500,000 new diagnoses and 125,000 people who die of breast cancer every year.

Breast cancer survival rates differ up to 30%, depending on where you live in Europe:  this is unacceptable!

Think Pink Europe: umbrella organisation

Think Pink Europe was founded as a non-profit organisation in March 2018 by five European organisations fighting against breast cancer in Belgium (Think-Pink), Bosnia-Herzegovina (Think Pink, “Zajedno Smo Jedno”), Greece (Alma Zois), Italy (Susan. G Komen Italia), and Romania (Fundatia Renasterea).

All across Europe, local breast cancer organisations, hospitals, support groups and governmental organisations actively work on a common objective: eradicate breast cancer. The disease remains the most common type of cancer in Europe, affecting women particularly. Over the last years, it became clearer that a deeper collaboration was the key to reduce mortality and – hopefully – stop breast cancer once and for all.

Think Pink Europe aims at improving and accelerating the exchange of information and best practices on health care and research. It focuses on reducing disparities to access health care and closing the health care gap between European countries.

Today, more than 30 organisations are part of our community, new members will be joining in soon.
