Increase in cancer coverage through Plan Esperanza (Plan Hope).

Until recently, public healthcare funding for cancer treatment was unattainable for the majority of Peruvians. In 2012, a new government National Oncology Plan known as Plan Esperanza or Plan Hope, was set up to address this and provide access for treatment of most common cancers.

For the first time, cancer care is now available for the general population. Since then,  we have been supporting the plan with educational cancer awareness campaigns and by strengthening diagnostic testing, as well as helping establish healthcare facilities and assisting with medicine pricing.
