Cancer is one of the most pressing public health challenges in Africa today. Every year, around 650,000 Africans develop cancer, and more than a half-million die from the disease. Within the next five years, over one million cancer deaths could occur annually in Africa. With less than one pathologist per 1,000,000 people on average in Africa, access to diagnosis and treatment is limited.
Partners for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment in Africa, which is supported by the ASCP Foundation, is leading the way in providing patients in underserved areas in Africa with access to cancer diagnostics and treatment by building labs and supplying telepathology and immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining. This crisis will continue to grow without more help.
Please give to the ASCP Foundation’s Global Health Fund today and offer hope to cancer patients tomorrow. Every donation will address this health emergency in Africa. To make a donation, please visit www.ascp.org/foundation.
