Stories from our citiesView all
Health is not just the responsibility of the Ministry of Health, it is the responsibility of everyone. C/Can’s Multisectoral initiative is bringing all stakeholders on board to work together on a patient-centred approach. The MoH is providing full support to C/Can’s work in Greater Petaling.
C/Can, with its local presence, provides us the opportunity to better understand and support the needs of local stakeholders to address the persistent barriers to get the right medicine to the right patient at the right time through a whole-of-system approach. At Amgen we are committed to make a difference on the ground and widen access to better cancer care.
In this new era of Cancer Control, WHO is excited to be partenering with C/Can to advance action in the ground. Together we have the opportunity to cocreate and test new ways of measuring quality cancer care, engaging the local cancer community as part of targeted action to build a skilled and professional workforce.
