CCN cancer program serves the individual residing in any part of the country (Nepal) having diagnosed to have cancer. The diagnosed patient will receive treatment at National Cancer Hospital (NCH) which is CCN’s sister organization. Our mission is to serve the individual having cancer in the holistic approach for their treatment, which includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, palliative care and end of life care.
Our team of expert physicians working at NCH will carry out the detailed work up of the patient including the investigations, plan and course of management be decided by the multidisciplinary tumor board. The patient will be then receiving the treatment as per the protocol considering in mind the various factors Viz performance status, stage of the disease, patient and family members wish and expectation towards the disease and the treatment.
CCN has achieved a milestone in cancer care by collaborating with Ministry of Health (MOH), government of Nepal. MOH role in enrolling CCN as a part of national leader in cancer care is highly applauding. As per the decision of the MOH, each cancer patient will receive a token money of Rs 1 lakh to be spent during the course of treatment through ( Bipanna sahayog Kosh). This service is available in CCN through NCH apart from all other government hospitals in the country.
CCN mobilizes its Human Resources, NCH medical team, successful community peers (influential individual with cancer or without cancer and cancer survivor and their families) to mentor and motivate participants in the program as well as making the most of existing agency resources and mobilizing volunteer workers.
CCN will continue to support the individual for lifelong follow up and survivorship programme.
Private fundraising, country, state and federal funding/grants are being sought to continue the programs. Cancer Care Nepal is providing free service to ultra poor citizen through National Hospital and Cancer Research Centre given by Government of Nepal. We are proud to say that demand of this service has been unexpectedly high within short period of time. Unfortunately current factual scenario is that we are unable to provide radiotherapy service, although its demand is rising day-by-day. Due to inadequate fund and expensive radiotherapy machine we have been unwillingly transferring patients to other hospitals giving such services.
With detail homework we are interested to focus on programme that will help us to establish the radiotherapy facility which is an integral part of cancer treatment and this will have hugh positive impact on the patient who are unable the bear the economic burden of the cancer treatment, as we provide our service at no or very nominal cost. And we have the back up of the fund provided by the government through “Bipanna Kosh“.
