National Cancer Society, a not profit healthcareNGO, was established in 2001 with aim of improving cancer care.The mission of the organization is expanding access to cancer care, so that,” everybody gets cared for”.
We have successfully established a unique innovative model of health care delivery using existing human and physical resources through principles of decentralization, empowerment, capacity building, task shifting. The model has proven the feasibility of taking specialized care to periphery and possibility of decongesting specialized tertiary centers.
We work in partnership with the government, to empower state run hospitals in cancer care.
We have trained more than 200 physicians and 400 nurses. The program is running as District Cancer Care Programof the states in India (Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh ).It has running cancer units in district hospitals with services catering to the needs of cancer patients.Assistance is provided from diagnostics unto end of life care including chemotherapy and palliative care.
