Support your city in joining C/Can
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.
Building city readiness to improve access to quality cancer care
Our City Checklist helps cities ensure they are ready to attain the maximum benefit from participating in the Challenge. It supports ministers of health, city health leaders, civil society organisations, industry partners, and other interested groups or individuals to gauge a city’s eligibility and readiness to take on the City Cancer Challenge.
The checklist can be used to identify areas that may need to be strengthened before considering an application, and provides links to resources that are available to help address these areas.
Call for Applications
Take Your City Further
The City Cancer Challenge Foundation is calling for cities to join its global network to expand access to quality and equitable cancer care. C/Can accelerates efforts on the ground by supporting health stakeholders and professionals with a new way of identifying and addressing gaps in healthcare systems.
Join the collaborative efforts and unlock the potential in your community that can lead to change on a national scale.
Past calls for applications
Since 2017, C/Can has been inviting cities to apply to join the initiative through a competitive application process. We have been overwhelmed by the level of interest and commitment from cities wanting to improve access to quality cancer care for their populations.
The 2020 Global Call for city applications resulted in Arequipa (Peru), Nairobi (Kenya), Rosario (Argentina), Phnom Penh (Cambodia) and Abuja (Nigeria) joining us to drive change in cancer care. Other applicant cities continue to undergo due diligence including on-site visits that were delayed due to the global pandemic.
