IAEA to boost capacity for cancer management at KNH

15 July 2014, 12:48 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Monday pledged to increase training for cancer specialists and expand facilities for cancer treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).

The pledge was made by Thabisile Moleah, the IAEA Project Management Officer, Kenya during her visit to KNH.

Moleah said that IAEA had secured admission for training of five doctors in South Africa universities to undergo training on cancer management and she is pursuing admission for four more slots in USA Universities.

“The training will not only increase number of cancer specialist in KNH but also in Kenya,” she said.

She hailed Kenyan specialists for acquiring training and returning back to Kenya to offer services to the increasing number of cancer patients.

However, she advised institutions to seek alternative funding for training because the international funding for IAEA has decreased due to competing needs from most of the developing countries.

Training of a specialist such as Radio-oncologist or a medical physicist costs 250,000 US dollars for 4 years.

IAEA is currently supporting the expansion of cancer treatment at a cost of 140,000 Euros through the establishment of national capacity for an integrated approach to early detection, diagnosis, management, prevention, research of cancer and radiation safety.
