Unit 2 1

Young Adult Cancer Unit

Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Unit

Teenagers and young adults fall through the cracks of our public health system. They are placed in adult or pediatric wards that do not cater to the requirements of their age group. We are working towards creating the first TYA cancer unit in India that will include beds, necessary equipment and a youth specific recreation center.

To further understand the specific needs of this cohort, KARO is sponsoring the 2-day conference on TYA cancer care in September 2017 organized by Tata Memorial Hospital.
