Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon

Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon, affiliated with the George W. Bush Institute, leads coordinated action to save women’s lives from cancer, enabling them and their communities to thrive.

The global health community has made significant progress in reducing the number of deaths from infectious diseases such as HIV and AIDS in Africa. That progress provides an opportunity to address two other leading killers of women in developing countries: cervical and breast cancer.

Building on Progress

"It’s time to take the next step in building on the progress that has been made over the past decade in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Many women who seek AIDS services also face the challenge of cancer. It’s not enough to save a woman from AIDS, if she is then left to die of another very preventable disease." - President George W. Bush
