Parliamentary panel expresses concern over rising number of cancer patients

@MVenkaiahNaidu
A Parliamentary panel has expressed serious concern over the rising number of cancer patients in the country. It suggested setting up of a High-Level Steering Committee to work out modalities for rolling out of a Hub and Spoke Model in a time-bound manner. It urged the government to expand and upgrade cancer treatment infrastructure for affordable and quality care by enlarging the network of the Mumbai-based Tata Memorial Centre. 

The recommendation was made by the Department-related Standing Committee on Science and Technology, Environment, Forest and Climate Change. The report was presented to Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu in New Delhi on Monday. The Committee also noted with concern the very high incidence of cancer in all North Eastern States. The Committee, headed by Jairam Ramesh, expressed concern, saying that over 68 per cent of cancer patients are dying in the country.
