Through our partnership with C/Can, the perspectives of patients and caregivers will be further strengthened using evidence-based methods that will help us to understand what we can do more to put patients first. Because together, we have one shared goal: Fulfilling the ultimate purpose of any healthcare system and getting patients the care they deserve—no matter where they live

Treatments are only as good as the system that deliver them, so we’ve partnered with C/CAN to advance locally-driven health systems strengthening in LMICs. Together, we enable and promote data-driven cancer policies and address challenges to diagnosis through sustainable and local development of cancer diagnostic solutions. A complete, prompt, and accurate diagnosis is vital to delivering the right treatment to people who need it—helping to add years to life and life to those years.
