Breast Health Needs Assessment
Susan G. Komen San Diego is the only organization that studies San Diego County to formulate a community profile, informing us of the gaps in breast cancer care and the barriers to health access. Komen San Diego then identifies the most critical needs within the community and works to fill the gaps and increase access to early detection and quality treatment.
Background information for the Community Profile Report is gathered for San Diego via focus groups, key informant interviews, breast cancer data and demographic data. All of the background information is analyzed, gaps are identified and priorities are established. The Komen Board of Directors includes the Community Profile findings in the Affiliate Strategic Plan and uses them to help select grantees, develop new programs and focus media attention on key issues.
