There is a huge shortage of oncology professionals, treatment/care and clinical research centres in Africa. Thus leading to a high rate of cancer mortality and morbidity.
The aim of the Cancer Centre of Excellence is to provide excellence in cancer treatment, patient-centred coordinated care, and clinical research services in across Africa.
Cancer centre of excellence comprises of three core sections: Medical (treatments/care), Education (foundation training) and Research (clinical trials).
We believe building technical institutions and services will deliver and fill the critical gaps in the (oncology) health system.
In line with SDG target 3.8, we believe that everyone should receive the cancer services they need without financial hardship.
CCoE affords access to quality basic health-care services and access to reliable, effective, quality, and affordable needed medications and vaccines.
Our Developmental Goals.
In accordance with SDG 3., B, CCoE provides support to carry out clinical research and the development of vaccines and medicines towards non-communicable diseases (Cancer) that primarily affect Africa, whereby providing access to affordable essential medications and vaccines.
Implementing a cost-effective cancer intervention across the spectrum strengthens the health system and increases Africa’s capacity to respond to a range of cancerous conditions across its population groups. This is critical due to the high number of people that will not be able to afford medical costs.
Working in partnership is central to how we measure progress and we are proud to work closely and continue to develop relationships with organisations, networks, and alliances from around the globe to help drive growth in the fight against cancer in Africa.
Working with org/groups brings the knowledge, expertise and the strength needed to drive our collective forces across our service responsibility.
cancer management units
The Goals of the CCoE initiative are:
- To partner with academic institutions that provide medical oncology professional training.
- To incorporate trained medical professionals into health care facilities by replicating the CCoE models’ success.
- To promote global values of professionalism, ethics, and social responsibility in the health professionals of tomorrow.
- To encourage students to participate in fieldwork/clinical research in local and other African under-served communities and attain the CCoE targets in those specific communities.
- To foster understanding of interprofessional working in African health issues.
- To maintain a progressive working relationship with government national bodies/ministries in Africa.
Our 2030 Priorities.
- To make cancer services accessible and affordable in Africa.
- To Identify and treat early-stage cancers at low cost.
- To increase the number of oncology professionals in Africa, across all spectrums.
- More clinical research in non-communicable diseases that effect Africa,
This unit includes two sections, which will be done at primary health care levels vaccination and the initial clinical assessments. Covering Colorectal, Endoscopy, Cervical, Prostate, Lung, Breast, and all cancers..
The purpose of the medical imaging unit is to perform screening, initial diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, image guided diagnosis, therapies and follow-up, using a wide variety of medical imaging equipment and techniques including: interventional radiology for treatment, conventional radiography, angiography, and nuclear medicine techniques as with positron emission tomography (PET) and gamma cameras..
The objective of a surgical unit is to provide general and specialized surgical care for patients. An important goal of surgical care is for an interventional curative treatment. Other reasons include diagnosis, palliation of symptoms, cancer prevention and reconstructive care.
Surgery, Radiotherapy, and systemic therapy.
Palliative and End of life care
Our purpose is to Provide relief from pain and other distressing symptoms, Affirm life and regards dying as a normal process, Intend neither to hasten nor postpone death, Integrate the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care, offer a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death, offer a support system to help the family cope during the patient’s illness and in their own bereavement, use a team approach to address the needs of patients and their families, including bereavement counselling.
