Cancer Control & Prevention Project


Cancer is an important public health problem with 7 to 9 lakh cases occurring every year. At any point of time, it is estimated that there are nearly 25 lakh cases in the country. Four lakh deaths are estimated to occur every year due to cancer. Forty per cent of the cancers in the country are due to tobacco. Hence Tobacco related cancers are very common among males, namely, cancers of the lungs and oral cavity. Among women, cancer of uterine cervix and breast are common. Cancer has become one of the ten leading causes of death in India. It is estimated that there are nearly 1.5-2 million cancer cases at any given point of time. Over 7 lakh new cases of cancer and 3 lakh deaths occur annually due to cancer. Nearly 15 lakh patients require facilities for diagnosis, treatment and follow up at a given time. 


Data from population-based registries under National Cancer Registry Programme indicate that the leading sites of cancer are oral cavity, lungs, oesophagus and stomach amongst men and cervix, breast and oral cavity amongst women. Cancers namely those of oral and lungs in males, and cervix and breast in females account for over 50% of all cancer deaths in India.



WHO has estimated that 91 per cent of oral cancers in South-East Asia are directly attributable to the use of tobacco and this is the leading cause of oral cavity and lung cancer in India.Cancer usually occurs in the later years of life and with increase in life expectancy to more than 60 years, an estimate shows that the total cancer burden in India for all sites will increase from 7 lakh new cases per year to 14 lakh by 2026. Though Cancer is a severe disease yet it is curable and preventable if detected and treated early. 


Hence, RLDS has taken a step towards the control and prevention of Cancer Disease from Odisha through Cancer Awareness Campaign. RLDS has made partnership with Cancer Patients Aid Association on 9th August 2010 and even with Cancer Care India on 21st January 2012 for Cancer Control & Prevention Project in Odisha State. 


RLDS has translated and developed cancer awareness booklets and leaflets in Odia language for Cancer Awareness Campaign which to be conducted in all the Educational Institutions and in all the rural villages where people are ignorant of the causes of Cancer. 



TATA MOTORS LIMITED has donated an Ambulance to RLDS for the cause and care of Cancer affected patients. RLDS  has planned to establish a Hospital with a special Unit for Cancer Care & Research.


Recently the Organization has purchased 5 Acres of Land in Muniguda Block of Rayagada District and 1 Acre of Land is separately reserved for the establishment of this Dream Project. The estimated  cost for the  establishment of the Hospital is $ 45000 USD.
