    About the Cancer Screening & Treatment Access Program

    With over a million new cancer cases and ~700,000 cancer deaths, the Mortality Incidence Ratio (MIR) in India at 67% is far above many other countries (e.g. the US has an MIR of 38%); hundreds of thousands of lives could be saved if this gap is narrowed. CHAI is initiating a program to expand access to quality care by supporting solutions to improve affordability, availability and quality of treatment through market shaping and supply chain strengthening. Early detection of breast, oral, cervical and other common cancers by effective screening at the community level is sought to be improved through capacity building of frontline healthcare workers, innovative testing solution and strengthening of referral and data systems. CHAI will initially focus on supporting the states of Madhya Pradesh and Telangana. CHAI has collaborated with partners and governments in  in the East African region to dramatically bring down the prices of 16 common chemotherapy drugs, thereby making the lifesaving treatment available to tens of thousands who could not access the same earlier.
