Financial Assistance Programme

It is estimated that about 150,000 new cancer cases are diagnosed in Pakistan each year. Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre was built with the mission of providing state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic facilities for cancer patients irrespective of their ability to pay. Our resources however, allow us to accept only a fraction of this number for treatment. Therefore, the Hospital has to prudently manage its resources by accepting those cases that benefit the most from treatment. Based on this we have established medical guidelines on which we screen patients for acceptance for treatment at the hospital. Since the hospital has limited capacity, these guidelines are subject to change. There are four broad principles which govern these guidelines on which patients are accepted for supported treatment at SKMCH&RC and they are:

  • Patients who are diagnosed with cancer or have any indication of having cancer
  • Patients whose cancer is at a curable stage
  • Patients who are physically capable of withstanding cancer treatment
  • Patients who have not been previously treated for cancer

Walk-in Clinics in Pakistan

For this purpose, Shaukat Khanum Walk-in Clinics have been established in Lahore, Karachi and Peshawar to screen patients and accept them for treatment on financial support at SKMCH&RC. Patients are seen on a first come first served basis at these locations. If you are interested in getting financially supported treatment at SKMCH&RC, or if you have any queries, please contact your nearest Walk-in Clinic.
