Sixteen essential cancer treatment medications, including chemotherapies, are now available in Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania, thanks to a new market access agreement.
Gary M Reedy, CEO at the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society (ACS), the Clinton Health Access Initative (CHAI) and pharmaceutical companies, Cipla and Pfizer have joined forces to bring life-saving cancer treatment to these sub-Saharan African countries. The collaboration is part of a broader effort led by ACS and supported by CHAI to improve the market environment for cancer care in Africa.
Every person with cancer deserves access to treatment, no matter where they live, says Gary M Reedy, CEO of ACS. “Collaborating with companies like Pfizer and Cipla is a critical next step toward levelling the playing field for people with cancer and saving lives in this part of the world.”
