Our work in Developing countries

Developing educational resources that can be used for free by healthcare professionals in Lower Middle Income Countries is a key priority for ecancer. Over the past ten years, we have worked with key international societies and institutions to develop meaningful educational activities that have a long-term impact.

Below you can see just a taster of our work.

ecancer has been working in Latin America for the last 8 years. Over this time we have run seven standalone events in Peru, Costa Rica, Argentina, Chile, Columbia, Venezuela and Uruguay supporting over 3,000 cancer professionals along the way. In 2018 we will run events in Argentina, Chile and Colombia.
