In the last 18 years, OCA has collaborated and has affiliated with a number of institutions in Oman starting from schools to commercial centers, clubs and associations with the objective to create awareness, raise funds and most importantly, to have our partners’ participate actively. We work very closely with private and corporate sectors, through their CSR projects. They are the backbone to all the activities we organize. We also work closely with the government sector, especially the Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Information, The Royal Oman Police, Muscat Municipality and other relevant government entities. Thanks to these collaborations, the Oman Cancer Association has developed many projects and has successfully implemented them through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) activities that always end up as a win-win situation for both the latter and us.
The Association’s activities are varied, and we categorize them as Direct Activities include Projects & Services, Patient Involvement, Empowerment, Awareness & Communication and Indirect Activities include Fundraising campaigns, Advocacy, Education & Training, Dedicated Research.OCA Activities
