The campaign has continued for the 17th consecutive year to help raise awareness of the disease and educate Thai women on how to protect themselves, as well as to raise funds for the procurement of up-to-date medical equiptment, R&D, and the treatment of underprivileged breast cancer patients. We organised charity roadshows at shopping malls and leading department stores nationwide to educate the public on breast cancer. The activities included a demonstration of correct self-exam by specialist nurses, souvenir selling , balancing bra donation and a workshop inviting the general public to decorate chemo hats for cancer patients. Under the Wacoal Pink Ribbon 2017 campaign, Wacoal have donated a combined 5,000,000 Baht to hospitals and breast cancer-related research projects in a continuing effort to help the Thai people safe from the disease.

MAMMOGRAM SAVES YOUR LIFE project for the eighth consecutive year to promote regular breast cancer screenings. The National Cancer Institute started a research project to develop a new screening method by identifying breast cancer marker in blood in order to solve the problem and help more Thais to access breast cancer screening at a low cost. The project has been financed by Wacoal.
Finally, The Thailand Section of the International College of Surgeons under the Royal Patronage of His Majesty the King organised the 63rd annual academic conference with the theme of "Breast-Bowel-Trauma & Patient Safety", attended by more than 300 physicians,nurses and medical students nationwide to get updated mainly on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
