Project Description

The context of cancer care in India, especially in Children, is characterized by high incidence, late detection, lack of access to quality affordable care to majority of the populace and hence high infant mortality. This is increasingly common in India, and makes this difficult to combat even more in rural India. Factors like social stigma, less ethical values, high investment, lack of prioritization, lack of Indian health systems maintaining efficiency in data collection, Lack of collaboration between the private sector and Government In addition to these, the high percentage of late detection owing to issues of access, affordability and awareness.

Further, it is of great concern to observe increasing deterioration of the key risk factors that contribute to the sickness, viz. use of alcohol/tobacco, obesity, environmental pollution etc. It is imperative for the stakeholders in the Government, Indian healthcare, local organisations working in field, NGOs to address this growing menace before it becomes a national crisis. Also, low resource setting and lack of awareness, especially in rural India with difficult or no access to quality services is a major problem to address and through this project, we are working to create a sustainable model and contribute to reduced infant mortality involving all the stakeholders – Government, Health care providers, local bodies, NGOs, care givers and patients.

The strategies will involve to improve - awareness and knowledge, beliefs, and overcome attitudes (social stigma) for the patient and their families, the healthcare service providers and the predisposing factors - clinical guidelines, protocols, assumptions about the patients and adherence to treatment; enabling factors, such as skills, resources, reimbursement levels, and attributes of practice systems; access to services , supportive technology and reinforcing factors, such as counselling, social support, community mobilization, professional practice norms, clinical performances, public policy, and the payer requirements. This will create an impact at the community level and the health care service provider level and we aim to upscale the project in the coming years in different states to create an impact at the national level. This will influence the risk distribution, care delivery and management policies. Our in-depth analysis of the current situation, existing gaps and interventions, the best practices will be documented. We want to contribute to bring about a positive change in the health systems in India. We are sure that this model is replicable and scalable.

Through this project, we aim to increase the number of informed patients and caregivers, number of children accessing treatment early, number of interventions at the grass root level, % of resources mobilized through community participation, % of children with increased survivorship, and number of children with improved quality of life.

We will create an impact with over 8500 beneficiaries this year, their care givers, families and extended families.
