Cancer care at the time of war

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has disrupted the ability of physicians to care for their patients. This disruption is especially critical in the field of cancer care, as delays in evaluation and treatment of cancer can lead to progression of disease and worsening of patient prognosis.

GMKA is working with the National Cancer Institute in Kyiv, Ukraine, as well as with other partners to assess critical needs within the Ukrainian health care system and assess gaps in cancer care provision. Electronic data collection will be crucial in the provision of care and resources during the war and in the rebuilding of the medical system in Ukraine in the years after.
