Africa Oxford Cancer Foundation

By 2020 there are expected to be 16 million new cases of cancer every year, 70 per cent of which will be in developing countries.

African countries are the least able of all developing countries to cope, having few cancer care services. Most Africans have no access to cancer screening, early diagnosis, treatment or palliative care. Consequently a diagnosis of cancer leads, in most cases, to a painful and distressing death.


AfrOx believes that by forging alliances of individuals, NGOs and governments to share expertise, technology, training and a degree of philanthropic support, much could be done to help reduce global disparities in cancer care.
