Our vision:
We have a dream that one day cancer will be eradicated,  and that people of all socio-economic, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds will have access to quality healthcare.

Our Approach:
To realize this dream, we have adopted a transformative approach rooted in the values of creative agency and collaborative work embodied in the African word UBUNTU.  This approach focuses on building collaborations, leveraging ICTs/lower cost technologies, and unprecedented diaspora engagement to catalyze high impact international collaborations to eliminate global health disparities, save lives, advance development. 
Outcomes:  New international and cross-disciplinary collaborations to eliminate cancer, global radiation oncology online courses, co-mentored diaspora-funded research microgrants, telemedicine and virtual medical missions, awards, unprecedented partnerships with sports, religion, industry, diaspora, to address global health disparities, ICT-powered research and education programs, knowledge sharing, publications, including yearly summit proceedings, catalyzing establishment/support for cancer  centers in Africa, networking with global health stakeholders from across the world, etc
