French Healthcare Association and Business France are proud to introduce the first edition of the mapping of French exportable solutions in the field of oncology. The ambition of this project is to bring together in a single document innovation, expertise and excellence in the field of prevention, screening, care and follow-up of cancer patients.
Among the leading causes of death in the world, cancer is also the leading cause of preventable death, since it is currently estimated that nearly one cancer death in two could be prevented. This is why the French Healthcare Association is offering, for the first time, this mapping of the French oncology offer, in order to participate in the dissemination of innovation and excellence in oncology to as many people as possible.
French exportable human and industrial expertise
For more than 20 years, the French “cancer plans” have become international models for mobilizing all resources, from research to care, to reduce cancer mortality.
France is at the forefront of progress by creating a favorable ecosystem to face the challenges of personalized medicine development.
In support of this ambition, twelve of the eighteen French cancer centers are ranked among the best hospitals specialized in oncology in the world. Among them, 2 are in the top 50: Gustave Roussy 5th and the Institut Curie 31st (members of the Unicancer federation). French experts also have access to the best know-how in the world to assess a country’s oncology needs and to assist it in implementing a national cancer strategy
