Our Vision

Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH) was established in 1994. Since then, we’ve spent in excess of £307 million on providing free cancer care in Pakistan.

Imran Khan Cancer Appeal (IKCA) helps run the only cancer hospital in Pakistan, which offers free cancer treatment to patients who can’t afford it. Annually, at SKMCH, we are able to provide free cancer treatment to 75% of our patients. Other patients, depending on their financial situation, are offered subsidised treatment.

Annually, we are able to provide free cancer treatment to 75% of our patients

  • Last year, 10,096 new cancer patients were registered at SKMCH, from a total of 14,532 who were admitted;
  • We performed 17,424 surgeries;
  • We provided 73,283 radiotherapy treatments and 50,797 chemotherapy treatments.

At IKCA, the bulk of our spending goes into the cancer care services we provide. Patients who can’t afford treatment are offered support from the outset. We cover everything from the cost of medication and pathology to treatment and surgery.

Shaukat Khanum Hospital was established in 1994 by Pakistan’s current Prime Minister, Imran Khan. Read our Story Here. Find out more about Shaukat Khanum Hospital Here.
