Cancer Foundation of India - CFI
CFI is on a mission to bring down the risk of cancers and promote early detection to reduce premature cancer deaths.
Work and Achievements
Cancer Foundation of India (CFI) is a charity with an aim to reduce the risk of cancers and help people detect cancers early enough. Currently in India cancers are causing too many premature deaths and with it comes late diagnosis which makes treatment exorbitantly expensive. Sadly, at later stages even the best of medical support cannot save lives therefore prevention, screening and early diagnosis are the only way out of this for Indians.
With changing lifestyle and extended longevity India is seeing far more cancers than ever before and that calls for different measures at the level of individuals, communities, corporates and policy makers.
CFI works at all levels that includes providing free screening services, training clinicians on techniques of early diagnosis, advocating with policy makers on tobacco control & cancer screening, promoting HPV vaccination in young adolescents, community training on breast examination, helpline service to provide authentic information on cancer, developing communication material in multiple languages, creating tobacco-free school campuses, sensitisation on junk food in schools/communities, conduct studies on tobacco control law implementation etc.
For the last 17 years CFI's team of professionals are making innovative approaches towards impacting lives and reducing the risk of major cancers.
