The Rajya Sabha has taken up a short duration discussion on the need to ensure basic facilities and affordable treatment to cancer patients. Initiating the discussion, Vishambhar Prasad Nishad of Samajwadi Party drew the attention of the House towards inadequate health facility for the treatment of the disease in the country. 

He also highlighted the unaffordable cost of medicines of the deadly disease. Mr Nishad demanded that every district hospital should have cancer treatment facilities.
