SVIMS Launches Institute of Cancer & Allied Sciences, Initiates Rayalaseem Cancer Registry

On the occasion of the observance of World Cancer Day, February 4 2019, Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences (SVIMS) Director and Vice Chancellor Dr. T S Ravikumar announced on Sunday about the launch of “SVIMS Institute of Cancer and Allied Sciences” on the occasion of World Cancer Day on Feb 4. An application for central government NPCDCS program for strengthening Tertiary Caner Center at SVIMS was not funded, since allocation for Andhra Pradesh state was already made to another government hospital despite the fact that SVIMS is the only system in AP with training programs in all 3 specialties; Medical Oncology (DM), Surgical Oncology (MCh) and Radiation Oncology (MD). However, undeterred by this, SVIMS director has made stepwise progress in developing this virtual SVIMS Institute of Cancer and Allied Health Sciences during the last 2-3 years with TTD support and philanthropic donations. – United News of India
