Breast Cancer Awareness App
Country: Switzerland
Website: DearMamma
Contact Person: Florence Homberger / Pascale Flückiger


The DEAR Foundation (financially independent Swiss donor Foundation) developed a free breast cancer awareness app for illiterate and literate women. The main idea of this app is to educate, and detect possible changes in a women’s breast trough self-checks and eliminate shame concerning mastectomy. Because early detection is the key for possible healing and is a precondition to put pressure on governments and health systems to provide services. The DearMamma App (for Android and iOS) is available in written and spoken versions in six languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Arabic and Hebrew) since October 3rd, 2018. The pilot countries are Israel, Palestine, Ethiopia and Burkina Faso.
