Cancer Care In India: Need for an Holistic Approach

According to WHO, over 1 million new cases of cancer are reported every year in India with close to 6.8 lakh people succumb to the disease. That’s not a statistics a country which is looking to revamp the way healthcare is being perceived would want to repeat year on year. Cancer professionals across the length and breadth of India are working on different aspects of Cancer Care, be it Newer Therapies, Psychological pain points, and obviously awareness regarding prevention but Cancer needs a multi-modality effort. The more connected cancer professionals would be, better is for the entire ecosystem of Cancer care in India.

Indian Cancer Congress (ICC), the mega science conference under the aegis of India’s top Oncology Societies; namely, the Association of Radiation Oncologists (AROI), Indian Association of Surgical Oncology (IASO), Indian Society of Medical and Paediatric Oncology (ISMPO) and Indian Society of Oncology (ISO), is an attempt to bring all cancer professionals under one roof to discuss and bring out comprehensive solutions to various roadblocks in Cancer Care. From scientific discoveries to making treatment more affordable, all needs to be tabled and talked about. ICC is the ideal destination for anyone who is working towards the common goal of not just reducing mortality but also taking morbidity into consideration for each cancer patient. An holistic approach involving all stakeholders of Cancer care in India will eventually lead to a better patient management and that’s the sole objective of ICC.
