The Challenge Fund was registered with the Charity Commission in England and Wales in 2000. The charity supports projects that improve the healthcare delivered to cancer patients in low- and middle-income countries and help reduce their suffering by:

  • Providing new cancer treatment resources, including chemotherapy drugs and anti-bacteria drugs
  • Training local nurses and doctors in cancer prevention, early cancer detection and cancer treatment
  • Raising the local awareness about cancer in order to encourage prevention and early diagnosis
  • Establishing effective palliative care services for terminally ill cancer patients
  • Increase the knowledge of cancer incidence and mortality through effective cancer registration
