The difference we make
We believe that today’s best can always be better, and that good is never good enough.
Heart disease and cancer continue to significantly burden individuals, families and communities, being respectively the number one and number two causes of death globally. The most recent statistics by the World Health Organisation estimate that per year nearly 10 million people die of cancer and nearly 18 million of deaths are caused by cardiovascular disease worldwide. As a registered health promotion charity with DGR status, we aim to promote the prevention and control of cancer and heart disease to support patients and their families.
Leveraging GenesisCare’s global expertise, resources and network, our mission is to seek out and support life-changing improvements in cancer and cardiac care, in order to create profound impact at scale for both individuals and communities.
We look to the future by investing in research that has the power to radically improve patient outcomes and rolling out innovative therapies at scale. We partner and collaborate with community organisations, advocacy groups, governments, corporations, and world leading research organisations with the aim of creating long-lasting, impactful partnerships for the public benefit.
We recognise research is a long-term game, but also follow the GenesisCare spirit – we use funds efficiently to get rapid research happening and get results to patients; we get things done, quickly.
