The Israel Cancer Association spearheads the fight against cancer diseases in Israel.
There are some 200,000 cancer patients and survivors in Israel today. About 30,000 are diagnosed with cancer each year. Cancer patients' quality of life has been enhanced through the promotion of research, prevention, early detection, improved treatment modalities, and protection of patients' rights. Thanks to the promotion of research and the emphasis on improved early detection and treatment, there has been a considerable increase in the cure rate and survival rate.
