Cancer medical mission 2017, a week long programme, was initiated jointly by the Partners for World Health and Rotary club of Dhaka Mavericks at the National Institute of Cancer Research and Hospital (NICRH), says a press release.
Elizabeth A Mclellan, founder and CEO of Partners for World Health says, "This disease needs extra care." She mentioned, "Not only the doctors, but also the nurses play a vital role in the treatment process. That is why they need proper training. Along with the treatment, they can provide mental support to their patients."
