The Cancer Care Working Group is a coalition of individuals working for improvements in outcomes, treatment and care of cancer in Malaysia. We are a diverse group of people, some representing organisations or themselves, with different areas of focus, including service delivery, research, prevention, information and support, care and treatment, and patient involvement.

Together, we work towards influencing cancer policy in Malaysia.

 

Objectives

  • To enhance and add value to the debate and ongoing campaigning for change in cancer policy.
  • To advocate for or influence changes to health and social policies and legislation affecting cancer, including but not limited to, prevention, research, early diagnosis, primary care, secondary care, access to treatments, living with and beyond cancer, and end of life care
  • To promote the empowerment and meaningful participation of patient groups to participate in public policy consultations and discussions.

Members

The Working Group is supported by an independent secretariat. The secretariat is currently the Galen Centre for Health and Social Policy.
