Global Breast Health Analytics Map (GloBAM). GloBAM is an interactive data visualization tool for analyzing the determinants of the global breast cancer burden. GloBAM provides a means for linking data on breast cancer incidence and mortality, health spending, cancer policies and practices, determinants of health and more by country. This innovative tool harnesses a wealth of data regarding breast cancer care worldwide and is vital to mapping health system resource levels, identifying gaps in breast health care and shaping resource-appropriate solutions. Data will be updated to reflect new data releases from IARC, the World Bank, WHO, IHME and other sources. GloBAM is essential tool in producing informed situation analyses of breast health care systems and serves as a platform for tracking measurable outcomes.

GloBAM was created by the Breast Health Global Initiative at Fred Hutch for Breast Cancer Initiative 2.5 through an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer Inc.

"Mapping global strengths and weaknesses will help us to focus towards more efficient and innovative solutions in order to overcome disparities in breast cancer patients' access to diagnosis and treatment. We can only accomplish this with BCI 2.5."  - Maira Caleffi, MD, PhD, UICC Board Member and Volunteer President of FEMAMA, Brazil
