The Princess Nikky Breast Cancer Foundation (PNBCF) has worked closely with both the Public and Private Sector in creating a powerful platform to continue the mandate given by the African Spouses and Office of the First Ladies as well as the United Nations (UN), the World Health Organization (WHO), the African Union (AU) and other multilateral agencies to transform the Global Health Policy Space addressing awareness, prevention and treatment of Non-Communicable Diseases primarily in the Cancer therapeutic areas.
