How we work with oncology
We work to make our essential oncology medicines available in Global Health Unit where there is a high unmet need for cancer care. In addition, we are dedicated to strengthening healthcare systems in these communities to support better care for people with cancer. We do this by forming partnerships with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), care providers and Health ministries to support the specialist training of doctors who treat cancer, and to increase awareness and understanding of cancer in the community and primary healthcare level to drive earlier diagnosis, leading to a greater chance of cure.
