International Atomic Energy Agency and National Foundation for Cancer Research Launch Major Initiative to Improve Cancer Prevention and Treatments in Developing Countries
Date:9/25/2007

VIENNA, Austria and BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) announced today that the two organizations have joined forces to establish the PACT Fund at NFCR. This special fund will support the IAEA's Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) in America for developing countries.

PACT was created within the IAEA in 2004 to build on the Agency's experience in radiation medicine and technology, with a mission of enabling developing countries to introduce, expand or improve their cancer care capacity and services in a sustainable manner. PACT does this by integrating radiotherapy into a comprehensive cancer control program that maximizes therapeutic effectiveness and impact. PACT integrates and aligns cancer prevention, screening and early detection, treatment and palliative care activities. Based on the Guidelines of the World Health Organization, PACT also addresses other challenges, such as long term support for the continuing education and training of cancer care professionals in developing countries.

IAEA was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005 for its efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is used in the safest possible way. One such use is radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer.

Based in Bethesda, Maryland, NFCR, an American not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1973 to support cancer research relating to the prevention, early diagnosis, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for cancer. NFCR promotes and facilitates collaboration among scientists to accelerate the pace of discovery from bench to bedside and patient access to effective therapies. NFCR is renowned for its visi
