Who is INCTR ?
The International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR)
is the not-for-profit, non-governmental organization founded in 1998 by the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) and the Institut Pasteur in Brussels. The INCTR’s structured programme of research collaboration, education and training, helps developing countries to develop an increased understanding of the causes and predisposition to regionally important cancers, and to increase survival rates and the quality of life in patients with cancer.
INCTR enjoys official relations with the World Health Organisation and currently has branches in the USA, France, Brazil, Egypt and Nepal and offices in the UK, India and Tanzania.
INCTR has continuously advocated the need for Cancer Control in low and middle income countries to have the same access to global funding as the major communicable diseases (HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis).
