In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, where cutting-edge technology and expertise abound, the importance of making quality healthcare accessible to all cannot be overstated.
This message reverberates strongly from Dr. Ashu Abishak, a Senior Consultant and Radiation Oncologist at the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre in India.
Dr. Abishak emphasises that “there is no point having good machines with good technique if health doesn’t reach to the public. All our facilities are wasted if we don’t reach the public because health doesn’t understand any boundary. We need to collaborate with each other to build capacity.”
Driven by this belief, the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre has forged a meaningful partnership with Peace and Love Hospital in Ghana.
The core objective of this collaboration is to empower doctors at Peace and Love Hospital with the skills and knowledge required to deliver top-tier cancer care to the people of Ghana.
Dr. Abishak underscores the urgency of addressing the growing cancer epidemic. He stated that “cancer is the next epidemic, and if we don’t understand it now, 10 or 5 years down the line, it will be very difficult.”
Recognising the burden of this disease, he emphasised the need to provide just and effective healthcare to those who need it. The partnership between these two healthcare institutions transcends geographical boundaries, harnessing the power of modern technology.
Dr Abishak explained, “with this world of online, we can do virtual platforms – we can talk to people – we can review the reports – we don’t have to technically be present.”
This approach allows experts in India to collaborate with doctors and patients in Ghana, ensuring that healthcare reaches as many people as possible. Dr Abishak notes that this collaboration will empower Peace and Love Hospital to provide advanced cancer treatment to patients in Ghana.
The choice to partner with Peace and Love Hospital was based on their dedication to non-communicable diseases, particularly cancer, and their reputation for serving the maximum number of people possible.
Dr Beatrice Wiafe-Addai, CEO of Peace and Love Hospital, expressed her enthusiasm for the partnership, highlighting how cancer management has evolved globally.
She emphasised the significance of collaborating with institutions that have made significant strides in cancer treatment.
“Apollo is the leading cancer hospital in the world where proton therapy facility is available,” Dr Wiafe-Addai notes, indicating that the partnership is not just a milestone for her facility but also for Ghana, given the complexities of cancer treatments.
Proton therapy, a cutting-edge treatment modality, is expected to be a game-changer in cancer care.
Dr Wiafe-Addai affirms its advantages, stating, “Proton therapy is one equipment that has come to change the way cancer is managed.” It brings hope to patients in Ghana, promising them access to world-class cancer care.
As Apollo Proton Cancer Centre and Peace and Love Hospital join forces, their collaboration signifies a shared commitment to ensuring that advanced cancer care is not just a privilege but a fundamental right for all, regardless of their location.
It is a testament to the power of global partnerships and technology in advancing healthcare and making it truly borderless.
