All India Institute of Medical Sciences
Institute Rotary Cancer Hospital
The All India Institute of Medical Sciences's Institute Rotary Cancer Hospital was created in 1983, with 35 beds and 2 floors. In 2003, it was converted into a 7 floor building, equipped with 200 beds. AIIMS IRCH has excellent healthcare technology for cancer diagnostics, screening and treatment. It is one of the few centers in India that has been able to establish a quality bone marrow transplant unit, in addition to researching into preventive and advance medical techniques to battle cancer in India. Their preventive oncology program has screened over 10,000 people thus far. We currently have a pediatric oncology project at this site.
The pediatric oncology project began in 2008 at AIIMS IRCH. Our local champion is Dr. Sameer Bakshi, pediatric oncologist and Associate Professor at the IRCH. We support one social worker at this site, through our partnership with Can Kids.
