The Papua New Guinea Cancer Foundation Inc
Commencing in 2014, The Papua New Guinea Cancer Foundation Inc. (PNGCF) was formed for the purpose of improving coordination of cancer education throughout the country.
Together with the burden that this places on an already strained health system, this approach addresses the situation of having multiple uncoordinated cancer activities, and limited information to both patients and health systems on cancer awareness and prevention activities.
PNGCF’s main source of funding is through corporate sponsorship/donations & project supporters.
