Often overlooked as a major health problem in developing countries, the burden of cancer is, in fact, rapidly increasing and there are presently more deaths from cancer than from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.
For more than 15 years, INCTR has aspired to save lives and reduce cancer patients’ pain in resources-limited countries by building capacity for cancer treatment and research.
