Greater access to comprehensive, and affordable cancer treatment services for all Nigerians.

Commissioned by President Mohammadu Buhari, and under the care of the Federal Ministry of Health, the centre aims to bring Nigeria closer to meeting its goal of providing quality, critical health infrastructure. Additionally, the centre will focus on the growth of local expertise through the continuing education of healthcare professionals.

Until recently, cancer treatment was either inaccessible or prohibitively expensive, with only patients who could afford to do so travelling abroad to seek treatment. With the development of the NSIA – LUTH Cancer Treatment Centre, comprehensive and affordable cancer treatment services are now within reach for many Nigerians. Once fully operational, the centre will have the capacity to serve about 3000 cancer patients every year.
