AXA Mansard, a member of AXA, a world leader in insurance and asset management, said it was involved in monitoring completed breast cancer awareness.
In a statement, it was said that the week of awareness of breast cancer was observed worldwide in the month of October. This is an annual international campaign organized by major breast cancer organizations to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
The statement said it also provided information and support to those affected by the disease.
Chief Executive Officer of AXA Mansard Health Limited, Mr. Tope Adeniyi, said, "There is still no sure way to prevent breast cancer. That's why it's so important to do regular screenings.
"Women need to talk to their doctors and get the benefits of checkups, breast examinations and risk factors. For women, it has become increasingly important to actively participate in breast health. "
According to the statement, there are approximately 1.38 million new cases and 458,000 deaths from breast cancer every year, "because breast cancer is by far the most common cancer among women worldwide, both in developed and developing countries."
It added that the majority of deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, where the diagnosis of late-stage people is mainly due to a lack of awareness of early detection and barriers to health services, as early detection was vital to survival.
Adeniyi said, "At AXA Mansard, we remain at the forefront of health preservation and strive to change people's lives in the fight against breast cancer. We are determined to make the world healthier. "
