Education and Training is fundamental to increase global cancer capacity. The Global Cancer Program aims to educate the broader cancer community on global cancer control and to develop infrastructure to support knowledge exchange.

The Global Cancer Program’s education and training initiatives not only include training for oncologists but also for other allied health professionals required for a comprehensive cancer services program.

The Global Cancer Program seeks to implement, disseminate, and exchange knowledge on cancer care and novel medical educational techniques.​​ ​
