KEY POINTS:

In Jordan, the policy remains that screening is only for diagnosing symptomatic cases, and only these cases are covered by insurance. 53% of diagnosed breast cancer women present at late stages . Most of the treatment cost is used to treat 53% of patients in advanced stages of breast cancer rather than using the resources to cure and save women. Breast cancer awareness and screening leaded by Jordan breast cancer program. The policy issue relies on both monetary (purchasing of new technologies, reducing the cost of examination, and providing comprehensive capacity building activities) and non monetary aspects (advocacy efforts, new policy development, and regulation). The policy is related to SDG number 3 (good health and well being).
