UCI/Hutchinson Center Cancer Alliance has developed a three-pronged approach for addressing the needs of cancer patients in Uganda:
– Conduct advanced research in infection-related cancers to better understand the pathogenesis of these diseases so we can develop and test more effective, efficacious and safer treatment and prevention regimens
– Improve clinical capacity through the provision of medical support and revised clinical protocols for those with infectious cancers
– Train clinicians and support staff to enhance local human capacity that can sustain the research and clinical care activities at the site.
