The “Rosa Sløyfe” campaign is organised annually in October, and is a collaboration between the Breast Cancer Association and the Cancer Society.

The Pink Ribbon Action in Norway is a collaboration between the Cancer Society and the Breast Cancer Association.

It’s been organised every year since 1999 In Norway, but it has its origins in the United States, where American women in the early 1990s demanded bigger grants for breast cancer research.
