									SWAZILAND BREAST CANCER NETWORK




  STRATEGIC PLAN

           April 2008-2011
                                      ABSTRACT
The Swaziland Breast Cancer Network (SBCN) is an organisation whose primary aim
is to respond to the incidence of breast cancer in Swaziland. Since inception in the
year 2001, it has had its principal aim as the raising of awareness about breast cancer
including “the promotion of self-examination and the importance of early detection,
diagnosis and treatment.” The Network collaborates with both public and private
partners to achieve its mandate, and has continued to be largely a volunteer based
organisation. This hampers its effort to extend service delivery to those people that are
in great need due to limited resources. The Network has developed a three-year
rolling strategy starting in April 2008.

SBCN Strategic Plan 2008                                                                                             iii
1.     INTRODUCTION

The Swaziland Breast Cancer Network (SBCN) is an organisation responding to the
incidence of breast cancer in Swaziland. The Network was established and launched
in 2001 with the principal aim of raising awareness on breast cancer including “the
promotion of breast self-examination and the importance of early diagnosis, detection
and treatment.” Its membership has been growing steadily over the years.

Since its formation the Network has been able to achieve its strategic objectives as set
out. Information has been disseminated to the public on the disease, where there has
been promotion of self-examination and the importance of early diagnosis, detection,
treatment and provision of a support network and breast cancer counselling to those
people who are affected directly or indirectly by breast cancer. The Network has been
able to raise funds to support its activities and has formed partnerships with strategic
public and private organisations. There now also is an office for the Network.

In 2004, an evaluation was carried out through a participatory rapid appraisal
approach to involve those whose perspectives come from ground level certainty. The
assessment revealed that during its first four years, the Network had grown in a
number of areas and had received overwhelming support from its members and the
general public. There was growth in the provision of services, including capacity
building, awareness raising, counselling, and breast examination of patients. The
study further established that even though these services were provided on a voluntary
basis, there was evidence of a continuum in striving to meet customer needs.

The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare stated that its greatest challenge in
achieving early detection of cancers among clients is a result of the limited facilities
for cancer screening and/or adequate equipment to facilitate early diagnosis and
treatment. Evidently, the Government’s outlined plan and objectives in fighting all
forms of reproductive cancers seems is intertwined with those of the Network, which
have placed considerable emphasis on the decentralisation of services to all parts of
the country.

The Network faces financial challenges which adversely affect the delivery of
services. Currently the SBCN receives funding from private organisations and
technical support from the government and public organisations like the city councils.
The organisation’s main source of income since its inception in 2001 has been
generated through fundraising campaigns organised by its volunteers but it now has
core funders.

This document is a review of “PLAN A” strategy for the Network’s activities during
2005-2007. Amongst other objectives, the revised strategy aims to facilitate soliciting
of core funding from potential donors whose assistance will ensure smooth operation
and sustainability of the breast care clinics. The new three-year strategic plan
document will be a rolling one reviewed annually. The revised strategy is also aimed
at improving the service delivery to the people and broadening the base of operations
within the country.

           MANAGEMENT


The management and monitoring of the strategic plan implementation will be the
responsibility of the Executive Committee (the Board) and the Executive Director. It
becomes a guiding document for programme implementation. Progress reports will be
made quarterly to the Board and the entire strategy plan will be reviewed annually. In
essence, it is viewed that this document will become a 3-year rolling plan. The plan
will be reviewed against the SBCN aims and objectives and also against the strategic
plan objectives themselves.
