Argentine Cancer Coalition

The Argentine Cancer Coalition (CCA in Spanish) is a conjunction of oncological patients organizations that seeks to qualify primary healthcare doctors as well as develop campaigns, first-aid rooms, health centres located not only in local neighborhoods but also in places with a great influx of patients, apprehending that there is increasingly evidence of how the most vulnerable societies are the ones that suffer a bigger impact of cancer. One of the main causes is the delayed diagnosis, when the disease it’s in an advance stage and the treatment possibilities are highly reduced. The CCA’s members are: the Oncological Patient’s Integral Community Attention Foundation (ACIAPO in Spanish), the Fight Civil Association Against the Ovary Cancer (ACILCO in Spanish), Lung Cancer’s Patients Foundation (FPCP in Spanish), Breast Cancer Help Movement (MACMA in Spanish) y Lymphomas Argentina (Lymphomas, Myelodysplasias and Myelofibrosis).

Among the activities undertaken, it can be highlighted:

  • Awareness campaigns about making regular controls and the primary healthcare doctors qualification.
  • Public information access requests in order to know the execution of public politics related to the prevention and treatment of Cancer in Argentina.
  • The application “The Journey” development, looking forward to seek the steps followed by oncological patients to reach their final diagnosis, with the aim of counting with more empirical evidence as well as detecting the weaknesses in the primary healthcare system.
