For the prevention and control of breast cancer in Indonesia, YKPI will continue to support government programs through early detection of breast cancer using the Self Breast Examination (SADARI) and Clinical Breast Examination (SADANIS) method, as well as free mammography examinations using mammography cars.

The Jakarta Breast Health Foundation (YKPJ) was established on August 19, 2003 as a non-profit organization which is a government partner to promote breast cancer counseling and prevention activities in Jakarta. Since January 2015 the name YKPJ has officially changed its name to the Indonesian Breast Cancer Foundation (YKPI)

Breast Cancer is one of the public health problems in Indonesia. According to the World Cancer Report 2008, breast cancer is the cancer most often found in one of the five women in the world. In Indonesia, from cancer registration data, this disease ranks first followed by cervical cancer, both in terms of frequency and in terms of mortality. Unfortunately, breast cancer in Indonesia is often found at an free advanced stage even though breast cancer can be found early with clinical examination and mammography.

Our society are in need for complete cancer services at affordable cost as handling of breast cancer patients requires medical equipment, facilities, and expensive medicines. In accordance with the development of breast cancer in Indonesia, it is necessary to establish a social foundation that may provide counseling, education and information services that are integrated, comfortable and can be enjoyed by the wider community.

While looking at the community’s need for information services and the desire to deal with costy treatment to women, especially in Jakarta, who have breast cancer, in 2003 Ms. Linda Agum Gumelar invited Dr. Sutjipto, Sp. B (K) Onk, to think of a foundation model with a mission to educate the importance of early detection of breast cancer to female community, especially in Jakarta and surrounding areas as well as medical assistance to those affected by breast cancer.

After getting advice from several former cancer survivors as well as doctors in the field of cancer, especially breast cancer, a team was formed in that year to develop a proposal for the establishment of a social foundation specialized in breast cancer.

After the proposal was completed and submitted to Linda Agum Gumelar for her approval, on August 19, 2003 the Jakarta Breast Health Foundation was formed as a non-profit organization and a partner of the government of the Republic of Indonesia. The foundation worked with other social organizations, government institutions and private sector. The Jakarta Breast Health Foundation (YKPJ) has a mission and function to provide information services about the dangers of breast cancer to female community, especially in Greater Jakarta and also support treatment distributed equally to the community, especially for patients suffering from breast cancer.

In addition to Ms. Linda Agum Gumelar, the founders of the foundation are Dr. Sutjipto Sp (B) Onk (Alm.), Ms. Tati Hendropriyono, Ms. Andy Endriartono Sutarto and Ms. Rima Melati.
