Kagil’s situation analysis revealed a range of challenges to the provision of quality cancer care, including an unsystematic use of data for planning, monitoring and evaluation of cancer care services and policies; lack of standardised diagnostic reporting; no standard system for multidisciplinary clinical decision-making and treatment planning; an absence of resource-adapted guidelines for the management of common and curable cancer types and corresponding treatment protocols; and insufficient measures to protect health workers from occupational risks related to radiation medicine and hazardous drugs.
This project aims to improve care coordination for patients with high suspicion or confirmed diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer attending one of the five cancer centres within the scope of this project.
A local multidisciplinary and inter-institutional team was assembled to coordinate the development of the different project outputs, in consultation with relevant experts in the city and external experts nominated by the technical cooperation partners of City Cancer Challenge (C/Can).
The experts from C/Can partners were invited to Kigali to conduct site visits and support the development of outputs, while selected project team members conducted scientific visits to cancer care institutions in Kenya as well as the Catalan Institute of Oncology in Barcelona. Furthermore, activities related to digitisation and training have been added to sustain the oncology network project. The final outputs will be endorsed by the City Executive Committee and the relevant authorities for implementation.
