Event Overview

Cancer incidence rates among the young has increased drastically in the MENA region. An alarming outcome, which indicates the requirement of focused research to address potential risk factors. Although developed MENA countries have shown promising health outcomes, the same cannot be said about developing countries in the region. Overall, Cancer is the third leading cause of death in the region. The MENA Cancer Care Summit, will be an exclusive 2-day event, which will include strategic deliberations on the whole oncology eco system. The event will focus on recent advances, current challenges and emerging therapies in the cancer care spectrum. The event will have an inclusive approach towards understanding the importance of technology & research in early detection, clinical approaches, prevention and control. The MENA Cancer Care Summit, will be a great opportunity for healthcare authorities, healthcare professionals, researchers, academics and cancer control o fficials fro m the region to engage and discuss on mitigating the effects of cancer.
