The Breast Cancer Association was established in 2002 with the aim of providing information and education tasks to cancer patients and their organizations, and by drawing on joint efforts and using the tools of publicity to draw attention to this disease as well as the importance and potential of prevention.


The Association also provides methodological assistance to cancer organizations and cancer patients. In this regard, many projects are coordinated, but in addition to information campaigns, attention is drawn to the importance of prevention and the fact that breast cancer treatment is truly effective when diagnosed in its early stages. Anti-breast cancer activity combines both the efforts of so-called patient organizations and individuals to make sure that as many people as possible support the efforts that they attach to the importance of protecting and enforcing patient rights. Another important area of this co-operation is to achieve equal conditions and equal opportunities for all concerned to receive the highest quality health care and benefits. The Alliance represents the Czech oncology patients in their country, but they try to show themselves to the international public as well. Since 2009, they have been members of the Europa Donna Coalition. The Women's Federation is currently comprised of 45 patient organizations from the Czech Republic, Moravia and Silesia and strive to cover this segment of society more efficiently and more fully.


Starting in 2013, the Women's Federation decided to target young people alongside adults with information to effectively combat cancer, so an educational program was launched. Its specificity is that it strives to communicate in the language – which is mostly non-traditional but rather proactive – of young people to address this age group. The title of the school project started accordingly: "It's not just about the breasts". Each year, more than 5,000 female students and high school students are able to attend, all over the country participating in enlightenment events. 


Between 2014 and 2015, the Women's Federation was actively involved in the project for the promotion of cancer prevention organized by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. The Women's Association is the expert partner of AVON the Marching. 

The Bellis Young & Cancer project was created in 2012. This project focuses on young patients (below 45 years of age) who are undergoing breast cancer treatment.

In 2015, the Alliance became the female non-profit partner of the 50th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival where she first introduced the so-called "Ostre sledovana prsa" project, which seeks to confront men and women with what they do for their health and calls attention to the importance of prevention.

In 2015, the Women's Federation received the title of reliable public benefit organization from the Public Benefit Associations of the Czech Republic.
