Quality Cancer Care for Women and Children in Jordan

Commitment by

King Hussein Cancer Foundation

In 2012, the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) committed to increase the availability and accessibility of comprehensive cancer care for women and children in Jordan, through the physical expansion of the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) and facilitating the accreditation of its healthcare facilities. The commitment aims to build the capacity of healthcare professionals to provide quality cancer prevention and treatment interventions, while increasing the number of women and children who will have access to and will utilize these critical interventions. By 2015, KHCF strives to train new health care professionals in early detection, conduct public awareness campaigns and build outreach programs, provide breast cancer screening services to underprivileged women in remote underserved areas, and provide quality treatment at KHCC for new pediatric cancer patients.
