Multi-sectoral partnerships at the city level are already showing value by bringing the right stakeholders and experts together. If you think your city could benefit from the C/Can model, use the documents below to familiarise yourself with our selection criteria.
Civil society and patient support groups
Civil society organisations and patient support groups are key partners in ensuring the sustainability of projects to improve cancer care, as well as monitoring and evaluating outcomes for local cancer care solutions. At the same time, they can unite and motivate local stakeholders to provide support to their city’s efforts.
Local, regional and national governments have a critical role to play in building strong and sustainable health systems, which ensures that cancer patients have equitable access to quality cancer care. They can lead the development of an enabling ecosystem, with the right policies in place to encourage strong and effective connection between key healthcare providers.
Scientific societies, professional associations and healthcare professionals are fundamental to our model. Your expertise and insights drive the identification of local needs and priorities, as well as the development and implementation of sustainable solutions.
International agencies are prioritising locally-led development, strengthening local institutions and their capacity to drive long term sustainable change. We can work together to elevate local leadership as they work to improve access to quality cancer care.
Private sector organisations can partner with C/Can, leveraging their know-how, global resources and networks to support the planning, development and implementation of locally-led solutions.
