Harvard Global Catalyst Win-win initiative

Catalyzing win-win partnerships between stakeholders and interested parties to increase access to Clinical Oncology-Radiotherapy, cancer care and prevention in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC)

In 2007, the Win-Win Scientific Initiative was proposed by Ahmed Elzawawy with aim of increasing affordability of better value cancer treatment in the world via exploring scientific approaches. All the stake-holders, particularly cancer patients and their families could win! This also includes flourishing the business of pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers of radiotherapy machines and medical devices without ruining a country of individual economies. In April 2016, the win-win initiative joined the Harvard Global Health Catalyst and became one of its activities.  This highly outcomes oriented session, chaired by Prof Elzawawy, will engage Industry leaders and stakeholders with goal of catalyzing win-win partnerships to increase access to cancer care and prevention in LMIC starting from Africa.
