Who We Are/What We Work On

 

Who we are

Allied Against Cancer is a network of partners committed to creating a future where every person with cancer receives the highest possible standard of care. At the center of our work is the African oncology community, who drives the agenda and priorities for change and impact.

What we work on

Affordable and effective resources for cancer care exist and save countless lives, but they are not always available in emerging health systems, resulting in large disparities in cancer mortality between high- and low-income countries. We seek to close that gap by advancing the practitioners, products, and processes necessary to deliver high-quality standardized cancer care.
