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, 10,203 new cancer patients were registered at SKMCH, from a total of 12,576 who were admitted;
  • We performed 13,817 surgeries;
  • We provided 65,759 radiotherapy treatments and 52,843 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.
