  • ICF’s 33rd Foundation Day marked with the release by Ms. Priya Dutt of a film – a walk through the institute in these pandemic times
  • Till date, 3236 free off-campus cancer surgeries were done and 7476 cancer patients offered radiotherapy of which 1413 were given completely free treatment while partial waiver of charges was given to 1969 cancer patients. Cancer surgery is performed off-campus, as the institute still does not have an operation theatre complex.
  • Over the last 32 years, another important focus of our activities has been the organization of outreach programs, especially in the rural and far-flung areas of the region. We have held more than 227 free cancer camps in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh & examined more than a quarter-million people in the high-risk group. Of these 227 camps, 32 were free cancer surgery camps, almost all in cooperation with the district administration, where more than 600 free major & minor cancer surgeries were performed. We have also organized more than 220 cancer awareness programs for the general public, mostly in the rural areas, and more than 200 training programs on early detection of cancer and palliative care for medical personnel, especially for doctors, nurses, and para-medical staff of the government health delivery system, the most extensive health services within the reach of the poorest of the poor in the remotest corners of the country.
