“In coming years, rising cancer rates will continue to strain Tanzania’s already under-resourced healthcare system; the effectiveness and scope of cancer care across the country must be increased to meet the growing demand.”
In spring 2015, we finished the first draft of our working White Paper: “Meeting the Challenge of Cancer Care in Northern Tanzania”. It examines the current state of cancer in Africa in general and northern Tanzania in particular, describes the challenges and opportunities inherent in building a sustainable cancer care program, and summarizes FCCT’s phased plans to impact cancer in the Northern Healthcare Zone. It is a working document, meant to be updated as we progress and intended to guide (rather than dictate) that progression.
