Approved by the Chairmen of:

Breast Centres Network is the first international network of clinical centres exclusively dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. It is a project created by ESO (European School of Oncology) with the aim to promote and improve breast cancer care in Europe and throughout the world. Since the year 2020, the Senologic International Society became the executive administrator of the program.
Our network includes Breast Units (Multidisciplinary Breast Centres) that fulfil minimum requirements (see Eligibility Gate) to be considered referral centres. The organisation of Multidisciplinary Breast Units is recommended by EUSOMA, EuropaDonna (European Breast Cancer Coalition) and the European Parliament. In the US, breast centre accreditation is offered by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
We offer an online Breast Unit Directory that provides detailed information at a glance about our members in an attempt to broadcast the state-of-the-art international standards for multidisciplinary breast cancer care.
