Maha Govt. links up Medical Colleges for cancer care


MUMBAI: The Government of Maharashtra, National Cancer Grid, Tata Memorial Centre, the Department of Atomic Energy, and Tata Trusts organised Virtual Tumour Board (VTB) meeting, connecting the medical colleges to provide access to expert opinion to cancer patients from the state’s remotest corners from a multi-disciplinary panel of cancer experts from across the country.

The VTB launch witnessed participation from medical colleges, Tata Memorial Hospital and other hospital members of the National Cancer Grid.

While inaugurating Girish Mahajan, Minister for Medical Education said, “Through these colleges and the virtual tumour board, people in the remote areas of our state can now get an accurate diagnosis, proper and affordable treatment.”

R. Venkataramanan, Managing Trustee, Tata Trusts said, “Today, we move beyond our conventional ways of working and remote care models like this will go a long way to promote use of technology to decentralize cancer treatment and hence enable access to high quality cancer care in the state’s remotest corners.”

Burzis Taraporevala, CFO and Company Secretary, said, “This is the first time in history that this kind of grid has come about and the role of Tata Trusts is to see that through proper bandwidth and connectivity skills and care are improved, such that there is affordable and accessible care and at the same time the care is of good quality.”
