According to statistics published by CancerIndia.org, the estimated number of people living with cancer in India are around 2.25 million, with 11,57,294 lakh cases diagnosed every year, and number of deaths registered to be 7,84,821. At times it is late detection of the disease and sometimes it is inadequate treatment due to monetary insufficiency that results into mortality in cancer cases.

In order to support cancer treatments for the economically weaker sections, Government of India has recognized 27 cancer treatment centers across India where people can avail subsidized cancer treatments. Across 21 states, in various districts, Central Government has launched a comprehensive National Programme for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases & Stroke (NPCDCS). The NPCDCS was initiated under National Cancer Control Programme which started in 1975 under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of India.

This programme allows the cancer centres to avail up to Rs. 60 million aid to provide services to cancer patients and is divided into two components:

The objective of NPCDCS:

  • Prevention and control of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) with behavior and lifestyle changes
  • Early diagnosis and proper management of NCDs
  • Enable healthcare to prevent, diagnose and treat NCDs efficiently
  • Train staff of doctors, nurses, para-medics to deal with NCDS
  • Structure palliative and rehabilitative care effectively

Here is the list of the 27 centres that are part of the NPCDCS programme:
