Cancer is a major global health problem that is projected to grow due to expanding and ageing populations along with a general shift towards more sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diets. The lack of effective primary healthcare and prohibitive costs means prevention is still a distant dream for many.
Our curriculum addresses not only the fundamentals of cancer and its management, but also the fear, misconceptions, and myths surrounding the disease.
