War on Cancer 2017, to be held on March 30th in Singapore, will provide an opportunity to rethink how governments, the international organisations and the private sector can accelerate the funding of improved cancer care. The event will tease out which cancer interventions make best sense, and how they can be efficiently and sustainably financed.
The conference will bring together regional cancer and healthcare stakeholders for a wide-ranging and robust discussion with the broader world of finance -with finance ministry officials, global and regional experts in financing health care, and private-sector financing and investment, including philanthropic and impact investors.
Critical topics to be discussed include:
- A global or regional fund for cancer control?
- Innovative financing for cancer care in Asia
- Access to cancer medications
- Scaling up radiotherapy and surgery
- Cities as the engine to accelerate cancer control
- Is universal health coverage for cancer a pipedream?
