Our Partners

RCC strives to foster global collaboration and synergies between organizations and institutional efforts. We have developed our mission with the support and communication of the following groups, as well as the thought contributions of radiation oncology professionals, field-experts, and cancer capacity building advocates throughout the field. Through effective communication, we hope to increase transparency and partnership between global health organizations and clinics in need. 

RCC and ACS Global Cancer Control are sharing their experiences to help impact cancer on a global level: by market shaping. We hope to improve access to life-saving cancer treatment for the poor in developing nations.
