#PreventCancerTogether: The Changing Landscape of Cancer Care in India

The fight against cancer in India is intensifying, with an increased focus on regular screenings and early diagnosis as pivotal strategies for improving survival outcomes. The National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-5 underscores the critical gaps in cancer screening, revealing a pressing need for enhanced programmes that can facilitate early detection, especially in rural and underserved areas. Despite the challenges, initiatives like the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY) and First Cancer Care (FCC) in Meghalaya are making strides towards universal health coverage, helping alleviate the financial burden on households and ensuring that more individuals have access to the care they need. Technological advancements, particularly in mobile health, offer promising solutions. By leveraging these technologies and strengthening community health programmes focusing on prevention and early detection, India is poised to make significant progress in its battle against cancer.
