Cancer knows no boundaries

Cancer kills more people in low- and middle-income countries than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. 80% of global cancer deaths occur in LMICs but only 5% of total global spending on cancer care is expended in these regions.

Our Mission

Global Oncology’s mission is to bring the best in cancer care to underserved patients around the world. We collaborate across geographic, professional and academic borders to improve cancer care, research and education.

Our Work

GO's diverse programs span the areas of educating underserved patient populations, reducing obstacles to diagnosis and treatment, developing technologies to promote knowledge exchange, and building public support of the global cancer problem.
