In Tanzania, cancer is the second cause of death after major infectious diseases (AIDS, malaria and tubercolosis) and this is the reason why the Vittorio Tison Association decided to promote, in this territory, several initiatives regarding health care education, primary prevention, early diagnosis and cancer therapy.

Ultimate Objective

The Project for the Cancer Control in Africa will see its accomplishment with the realization of a Comprehensive Cancer Center that will be able to offer the best and complete possibilities in cancer therapy to most part of the Sub-Saharan Africa population.
Taking advantage of the most modern telemedicine techniques, the Centre could become an integral part of the international research network.
