January On the heels of the 12th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation, I find myself reflecting on the essential topic of measurement.(It must be the epidemiologist in me.) Given the theme of the conference, “Raising the bar on the rigor, relevance, and rapidity of dissemination and implementation.

Breast cancer is the world’s most common cancer among women, and it is the most likely reason that a woman will die from cancer (maps and ). Breast cancer is becoming an increasingly urgent problem in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), where incidence rates, historically low, have been rising by as much as 5 percent per year (Bray and others ).
