The rising incidence of cancer around the world is also affecting Pakistan’s poorest.
Despite our achievements in the fight against cancer, we’re still only able to treat a fraction of the patients who come to Shaukat Khanum Hospital every year. To increase our intake and boost our patient capacity, we’re building the Lahore clinical Tower. Can you help?Donate to the Lahore Clinical Tower
Shaukat Khanum Hospital (SKMCH) was established in Lahore in 1994. As a comprehensive care facility dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, it was a first in Pakistan. For over two decades, we’ve offered comprehensive cancer care free of charge in a hospital which houses all the specialised diagnostic and therapeutic facilities under a single roof.
Did you know…
That SKMCH conducted the first ever bone marrow transplant in Lahore in 2006. The £14,000 procedure was carried out at no charge to the patient and was made possible through the generous support of an anonymous donor.
SKMCH was the first hospital in Pakistan to procure a PET CT scan in 2007. A Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computerised Tomography (CT) scan is an imaging technique. It helps provide information about the activity of cancer cells. Previously, patients in Pakistan had to go abroad to undergo this test.
Together we’ve changed the face of cancer in Pakistan. Please help us continue to give hope in the fight against cancer.
