All Women Count! Program, South Dakota Department of Health
South Dakota Department of Health’s program, All Women Count!, has impacted over 22,000 women since its founding in 1997. The program helps women pay for mammograms and diagnostic tests which help detect breast cancer it its earliest, most treatable stage. Over 200 partnering healthcare facilities across South Dakota provide services to women who either do not have insurance, or have insurance but cannot pay their deductible or co-payment.
"Breast cancer screening is an extremely important part of saving lives through early detection. Thanks to funding support from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, we can make this life-saving screening available to women 30 to 49 who otherwise, would have no way to pay for it. The partnership between the Foundation and the public health agency in South Dakota is a great example of working together for a healthier future."
