Objectives
  • Supporting cancer healthcare capacity building in resource-constrained countries around the world.

Celgene Cancer Care Links is a new grant program to support cancer healthcare capacity building in resource-constrained countries around the world. As part of this program, Celgene will collaborate with local communities and institutions focused on enhancing patient care and building sustainable cancer care systems.

Many parts of the world dealing with poverty, infectious disease, and food insecurity, now must face the additional burden posed by non-communicable diseases (such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes). Organizations and medical centers with cancer expertise have developed programs to share knowledge and resources to meet the needs in resource-constrained countries. However, the burden of cancer in these locations continues to need additional support, as recognized by many organizations, including the World Health Organization, American Cancer Society, and the Union for International Cancer Control.

As part of Celgene’s dedication to changing the course of human health as well as our commitment to addressing the needs of cancer patients, Celgene Cancer Care Links program will fund initiatives which enhance patient cancer care in resource-constrained countries around the world.
