In 2015, Malaysia, along with other states of the UN, committed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which includes reducing the global cancer burden by one-third by 2030.
A goal of this scale requires all sectors to work together. The World Health Organization also reports that every Ringgit invested in the control of cancer brings a return of RM7. Private and corporate partnerships thus not only make good business sense, but are vital in helping us create a sustainable, healthy, and economically-thriving society.
In 2017, through corporate partnership and grants, we were able to:
Cancer is one of the largest causes of deaths in Malaysia. 1 in 4 Malaysians are likely to get cancer by age 75 while 2 out of 3 of Malaysian cancer patients are detected in late stages. Will you lend a hand?
Our partners are also key strategies for driving community engagement, and supporting the delivery of our programmes and health campaigns, thereby increasing understanding of our work and awareness about cancer.
We would like to give our special thanks to the following corporations for their support and generous contributions to our cause.
The battle against cancer requires many sectors to work together. Apart from complementing the cancer screening programme of the Government, this (free mammogram) programme, by uniting private healthcare, NGOs and corporates, is a great example of such a collaboration.
