“Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration is a grassroots initiative building capacity for palliative and end-of-life care in resource-constrained countries. It’s Canadians working with health professionals in India and other countries to create a self-sufficient, sustainable system of care for those in need. ” – Dr. Simon Sutcliffe
A major focus of Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration has been to support curative interventions for childhood cancers. 2WCC in partnership with the International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR) is developing resources and protocols that can be implemented and sustained by care professionals in resource-constrained communities.
Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration’s pediatric care goals:
- establish a curative cancer treatment program for children age 0-5 years
- establish the collaborative partnerships necessary to implement programs locally
- build self sufficiency for long-term, sustainable care programs
