According to Tata Memorial Centre director Rajendra Badwe, the facility hopes to treat 20% more cancer patients annually by 2030 than it does now, from 10% of all cancer patients nationwide.
10% of all cancer patients in the nation are currently treated at the centre each year.
According to Badwe, the leading cancer treatment and research institute, supported by the Tata Group and the government, is increasing its facilities and educational capacity to prepare the workforce that will be needed to meet the goal.
Currently, 10% of the 13 lakh cancer patients treated annually in India receive care at Tata Hospital. The director stated, “We would like that to double to somewhere around 20% of the entire national problem. The target to double is being attempted to be realised by the end of the decade.
