Cancer deaths in Africa are projected to double in the next fifteen years. Access to treatment in the region is low which leads to unnecessary suffering and death. The American Cancer Society’s Global Cancer Treatment program works to improve access to cancer treatment in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Program Manager, Access to Treatment, manages a portfolio that focuses on development and uptake of cancer treatment guidelines, and supporting technical collaborations among health ministries and cancer centers within the region. In this work, The American Cancer Society works closely with our partners in African health ministries and cancer centers, as well as the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). The Program Manager also works closely with other members of a small headquarters team and program staff based in our partner countries.
