The Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance (GCBCOA) was founded in 2006 with breast cancer patient groups coming from United States, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Taiwan, etc. The Alliance is devoted to promote the breast health education and provide patient assistance through:
(1)knowledge and information exchange to facilitate the understanding and cooperation among the cross-boundary parties, minimizing the chance of women being threatened by breast cancer by providing the best health care solution to patients;
(2)working with international research institutions to execute the research on the causes, prevention, testing, diagnosis, treatment, counselling to breast cancer patients;
(3) assisting the establishment of more support teams by providing appropriate trainings.

Hong Kong Breast Oncology Group
Established on 15h February 2014, the HKBOG is a formal platform with representatives from all the Key Opinion Leaders for Breast Oncology from all the 7 public cancer centres under the Hospital Authority as well private oncology centres in Hong Kong, including both Medical Schools at The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).
