Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad today said the cancer treatment centres across the different states will be connected online to facilitate country’s telemedicine services and medical education.

The Health ministry is in the process of establishing ‘OncoNET’ (India), a network connecting 27 regional cancer centres and 100 peripheral centres to facilitate telemedicine services and medical education, the minister said.

“The peripheral centres at the district level would initially be linked to the regional cancer centres,” Azad said during a function at Tata Memorial Hospital here.

The minister said Centre has allocated Rs 2,400 crore for National Cancer Control programme during the 11th Five Year Plan which is ten times more than the previous plan and the focus is on community based cancer prevention and control strategies.
