The aim of this initiative is to develop and deliver capacity building and educational programs for appropriate diagnosis and management of cancer.
Consultorio Rosado, known as Pink Consulting Rooms, is an initiative developed by Roche and adopted by Colombian Mastology Association (ACM) that aims to increase the early detection of breast cancer, through timely diagnosis and treatment. The initiative has been adopted in the main cities and extended to other regions with difficulties accessing services.
