Strategic Document Development

In close cooperation with relevant WHO offices, PACT helps Member States to put together cancer control plans that reflect a comprehensive approach to strengthen cancer care and control at the national level.

National strategies for cancer control need to address prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and palliative care. Cancer research and surveillance are also important for the development of effective control programmes that meet local needs. In addition, the safe and efficient use of nuclear technology involving radiation sources requires that appropriate infrastructure is in place to ensure that patients receive the optimum dose of radiation for their condition, that levels of occupational exposure to radiation are as low as reasonably achievable, and that risks to the public are minimized.

Cancer control plans may require the contribution of many international organizations that work in the area of cancer. Member States are responsible for ensuring that a national structure is in place to oversee the implementation of these plans.
