Global Coalition for Radiotherapy supports those affected by war in Ukraine
The GCR established an Emergency Radiotherapy Task Force on 15 Mar 2022 by request of the World Health Organization (WHO) to support Ukraine cancer patients and colleagues. The global radiotherapy community has come together, including individuals, industry, and organisations, as well as Ukrainian and Eastern European physicians receiving refugees to support.
The aim of the Radiotherapy Task Force is to provide the WHO Emergency Committee with a “needs assessment document” for radiotherapy providers and patients in Ukraine. This document provides intelligence for current and future support needed in Ukraine and surrounding
Eastern European countries.
Emergency Radiotherapy Data Request
The GCR is working to provide important data to the European Cancer Organisation, World Health Organisation Europe and other concerned parties, to help patients get the support they need.
