Cancer Summit 2020 in Hyatt Regency, New Delhi

Integrated Health & Wellbeing Council(IHWC), a not for profit organization dedicated towards creating a positive synergy among people regarding health & wellbeing is organizing  a one day  Cancer Summit, Tuesday, 4th February 2020, Hyatt Regency, New Delhi  inviting Ministries, Government bodies, Health Department& Institutes, Hospitals, Experts, Technology, Equipment, Services & Solutions providers directly & indirectly involved in Cancer Risk, Diagnosis, Survival, Treatment & Medication. The summit will be a meaningful networking platform for the key stakeholder, experts and thought leaders from various sectors of Radiation Oncologist, Medical Oncologist and healthcare ecosystem to discuss the current situation, challenges and advancements relating to the standard comprehensive cancer treatment.

Cancer has transitioned from being the big unmentionable in medical care and personal illnesses to being the frontier of advances in biomedical sciences, and a diagnosis of cancer does not mean abandonment of hope for all who receive it.

This transformation has been enabled by advancements in knowledge and understanding of the disease, as well as through a collective resolve amongst stakeholders to address the global threat posed.  Today, advances in molecular and gene level approaches have enabled improvement in chances of cures and longevity of life, thereby better prognosis. A strengthened resolve amongst the policymakers through revamped resource allocation, cross cutting collaborations, strengthened health systems has greatly supported this transition.

However, the flip side of this journey is the still burgeoning incidence of Cancer not only in India but globally. Despite all the successes achieved, globally, about 1 in 6 deaths are attributed to Cancer. Some cancers are preventable – we need far greater resolve amongst the stakeholders to address these preventable causes, from Tobacco and harmful industrial chemicals, to vaccinating against infectious causes like the human papilloma virus (HPV) and the Hepatitis B virus.

Most cancers are treatable, with survival quality of life near to, or at normal. Key to this outcome is heightened awareness of, and early detection of cancer. Once detected, the therapeutic triad of medicines, radiation and surgery have become far more sophisticated, substantially minimizing the unintended effects such as disfigurement, loss of function to name a few.

India carries a growing proportion of the global burden of cancer, and while a systematic policy response is already in the process of being rolled out, all stakeholders need to come together to ensure that Cancer does not become a major drain on individual and national productivity and resources.
