- To raise public awareness on the importance of early detection & scientific treatment of cancer, even in remote & tribal areas.
- To facilitate capacity enhancement of the medical cadre, particularly at the rural level, so that they are aware of the preventive aspects of cancer and are adept at its early detection.
- To improve quality of life of terminally ill cancer patients especially by making them pain free in the end stage of their life
- Given the high incidence of head & neck cancers in India, develop a national institute devoted to head & neck cancers, a state-of-the-art centre of excellence working on preventive strategies, diagnostic programmes, clinical & basic research so that we are able to find answers to our own national problem in this area.
