DOH, WHO unveil new strategic framework for cancer control

Its launch coincides with the fifth anniversary of the National Integrated Cancer Control Act.

The Philippines’ Department of Health (DOH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have jointly launched the 2024-2028 National Integrated Cancer Control Program (NICCP) Strategic Framework.

The launch coincides with the fifth anniversary of the National Integrated Cancer Control Act (NICCA), which promotes quality and affordable cancer health services for patients.

The new strategic framework summarises the vision and mission of the National Integrated Cancer Control Council (NICCC), highlighting its goals, capacities and priorities for cancer control over the next four years.

The establishment of NICCA has marked a critical step for the improvement and accessibility of cancer centres through financial support, multi-sectoral councils for policy-making, planning, and coordination in cancer prevention and control.

“With the implementation of this strategic framework with our partner agencies, different medical and oncology experts, and partner patient groups, the DOH is confident that the NICCC and key stakeholders will rise above the challenges of cancer control, thus steering us closer to achieving the objectives of Universal Health Care,” Teodora J. Herbosa, Secretary of DOH, said.
