Retinoblastoma is rare childhood cancer. It is highly curable when diagnosed and treated early. However, there are less than 40 % retinoblastoma survivors in several developing countries, among whom there is a high rate of partially sighted people due to late diagnosis and a lack of access to specialized care.
INCTR works in partnership with TUCCA - an NGO for poor children and adolescents with cancer in Brazil - to run awareness campaigns directed towards both health care professionals and the public with the goal of improving early diagnosis of this disease. TUCCA is closely associated with the Brazilian Branch of INCTR. This year, the AMCC - INCTR French Branch- is aiming to launch a similar program in Sudan, Morocco, Mali, Congo Brazzaville, and DRC which will also facilitate access to treatment and support the rehabilitation of cured children.
