I chose this article because it talked about what we listen about in the Ted talk.  It is interesting to think about why the global governments have been improving and to read an article like this was just fascinating. This relates to half the sky by talking about women's role in gender inequality

India Breast Cancer Surge Hinders Private Exams for Women

India Breast Cancer Surge Hinders Private Exams for Women | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

"Oncologist Bhawna Sirohi hurries to the front of a packed seminar room at Mumbai’s Tata Memorial Hospital on a Thursday afternoon in April. Cramming this meeting into her 12-hour workday, she greets more than three dozen breast cancer patients united by the bright scarves covering their bald heads.

Sirohi says that when she began her job at Tata Memorial, Asia’s largest cancer treatment center, last year, she realized she could never give the 50 to 60 patients she sees each day enough individual attention. Doctors at India’s premier oncology hospital typically have less than 10 minutes apiece for 1,000 newcomers a week. They often examine three people at a time in a single room, Bloomberg Markets magazine will report in its December issue.

VIDEO: Doctor Says India Can Reduce Breast Cancer Cases

During Sirohi’s 11 years at London’s Royal Marsden hospital, she saw no more than 35 people a day and spent about 45 minutes with new patients. At Tata, she decided her best option was to co-host once-a-month group sessions for women coping with breast cancer.

“In London, I would have a nurse holding the patient’s hand, sitting with them, giving them a cup of tea,” says Sirohi, 45, in her 8-foot-by-8-foot (2.4-meter-by-2.4-meter) office. Ten floors below, hundreds of people shift on metal seats, lean against walls or lie on the stone floor waiting for doctors.

“Here, they have been given devastating news; I deliver it at least seven times a day,” she says of patients with terminal cancers for which there are no treatments. “Sometimes you do it for 23-year-olds, which is very tough.”

This article talks about the alarming rise of breast cancer in India.  "More than 115,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. The few treatment centers that track survival say 52 percent of breast cancer patients in India are alive after five years, a 2010 study published in The Lancet found. That pales in comparison with the 89 percent survival rate in the U.S. and the 82 percent rate in China.
