Cancer cases in India projected to surge 14.6-15.7 lakh in 2025

New Delhi, Mar 14 (Prensa Latina) The toll of cancer cases in India is projected to ramp up from 14.6 lakh in 2022 to 15.7 lakh in 2025, the State for Health Minister Bharati Pravin Pawar told Parliament.

Pawar said a population-based initiative for prevention, control and screening for common non-communicable diseases (NCDs) including diabetes, hypertension and common cancers, has been rolled out in the country under the National Health Mission (NHM) and also as a part of comprehensive primary healthcare.

Through this program, those aged over 30 years are targeted for screening for three common cancers: oral, breast and cervical.

Screening for these common cancers is an integral part of service delivery under the Ayushman Bharat Health and Wellness Centre scheme, the minister said in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.

The Department of Health and Family Welfare provides technical and financial support to the States and Union Territories under the National Programme for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases and Stroke (NPCDCS) as part of the NHM, based on the proposals received from the states and subject to the resource envelope.
