According to Epidemiological studies, there has been more than 1 million new cases of cancer in 2020 in Africa, while available treatment options remain insufficient.

28 african countries have no radiation therapy equipment available at all, and there has been a large increase in the number of cancer cases due to demographic and socio-economic factors.

The goal of European Cancer Centers is to develop access to radiation therapy treatment in Sub-Saharan Africa by creating a network of specialized medical Centers (phase 1 : Cameroun, Ivory Coast, Senegal) in the context of an African – European partnership.
