According to the World Health Organization, worldwide there are 1.38 million new cases and 458 000 deaths from breast cancer every year. It is one of the most common cancers among women and can afflict men as well. As a company that values our employees, our clients, and the members of our communities, at CEMEX we have undertaken different initiatives to join the battle against breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Today great strides have been made in the fight against breast cancer, in no small part thanks to the efforts to bring awareness about the disease and the importance of early detection for effective treatment. To this end, many of our business units undertook internal campaigns to teach employees about the importance of self-exams. For example, our employees in Poland, aligned with human resources, made use of the recently created “Women’s Forum” to put together an informational campaign.

Some of our business units looked towards the community, such as our employees in Panama who hosted speakers at the CEMEX Community Development Center and whose ANSPAC graduates visited local hospitals and neighborhoods. Still other offices lent their time to fundraising efforts involving charitable organizations.

We are pleased to play a part in the global fight against this disease that truly affects everyone. These are some of the initiatives we undertook this month:
