Mission

The INCTR Challenge Fund was registered with the Charity Commission in England and Wales in 2000. The charity supports projects coordinated by the International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR) that improve the treatments 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
