Cancer Global Health Initiative

Worldwide the incidence of cancer is increasing rapidly and people who live in low and middle income countries (LMIC) continue to bear a disproportionate share of the burden.

Global Research Platforms

Our global outlook and Cancer Global Health Initiative is informed by these strategic operating principles:

  • Focus on low income countries
  • Forming legitimate local partnerships
  • Team science and collaboration through novel research platforms
  • Innovation and evidence-based decision making
  • Building local capacity for research, treatment, prevention, and training
  • Sustainability and scalability
