To ensure truly sustainable improvement, Porto Alegre was challenged to build on the work initiated with the support of City Cancer Challenge (C/Can) and ensure cancer care remains at the forefront of policy, innovation and change in the city.
To develop the necessary institutional and organisational capacity to mobilise resources, manage cancer care projects and keep cancer front and centre of the policy agenda.
By strengthening organisational and institutional capacity to expand and catalyse the efforts begun by Porto Alegre within the C/Can engagement process.
A non-governmental association officially launched to ensure long-term commitment from cancer community stakeholders.
This project has proved invaluable in helping us to improve the way we cost radiotherapy treatment for prostate cancer patients, allowing us to better allocate our limited resources and improve outcomes for patients.
