ASCO is now inviting proposals from medical institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the Sub Saharan Africa region to participate in the Society’s education and knowledge-exchange program, the International Cancer Corps (ICC). The request for proposals (RFP) process is now open, and all proposals are due July 15.
With LMICs experiencing the greatest burden of cancer, the ICC’s mission is to help improve the quality of cancer care at medical institutions in these countries by sharing knowledge and skill-building resources and opportunities. In collaboration with the participating medical institution, the program provides education and training to clinical staff by ASCO member volunteers.
ASCO will work with the host institution to organize one in-person or online course per year to develop multidisciplinary care approaches and improve palliative care for patients with cancer:
To facilitate collaboration, ASCO volunteers will visit the host institution in person or virtually up to four times a year to provide the Host Institution with additional training.
