CPAA, one of the largest cancer NGO's of India, was established in 1969 with the mission of Total Management of Cancer. While our primary concern is to meet the needs of underprivileged cancer patients who otherwise would not be able to benefit from the best treatments that medical science has to offer, we are now trying to reach out to patients from all walks of life in every possible way.

 Over the last forty nine years the organisation has expanded its vision and looked to address the causes of the exponential increase in cancer cases in India, primarily due to lack of knowledge and awareness of cancer. CPAA not only complements the Medical Oncologists, Physicians and Hospitals but also extends its activities by focusing on awareness, early detection, cancer insurance, support to treatment, guidance, counseling, rehabilitation, advocacy and research. It is this distinctive approach that has won the organisation respect and attention over the years for impacting people’s lives in a positive and healthy way. CPAA continues to evolve as an agency for the cause of cancer and against its perils.

From a well-meaning group of individuals who had laudable intentions but could only afford the distribution of fruits and newspapers, to a multi-faceted organization helping patients cope with every aspect of cancer, CPAA has grown exponentially in scope, size and influence. We have a presence in Mumbai, New Delhi and Pune. For more on our activities, click here.

Through the medium of the website, we are in touch with readers on five continents. We have extended material assistance to patients from Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

What Drives Us

What is it that inspires the people at CPAA? Here’s our Founder Chairman, Mr. Sapru, on the subject:

"Today’s management techniques focus on teaching people how to feign sentiment they don’t really feel. Genuine results can only come when the feeling originates in the heart. We are lucky that all our employees have this common characteristic. There is true sympathy for the people who come to us. Each one is willing to go out of their way to help."

 Our Vision:

To be an all-encompassing cancer help-agency that works towards patient care, aid and assistance, awareness and advocacy. To understand and relate with the far-reaching impact cancer has on an individual’s life. To go beyond the malignancy and treatment of cancer on the medical front and help the individual cope with the economic, social and psychological shadows the disease may cast. To effect and move policy that will ensure a fair chance of treatment for every Indian citizen. To live out completely the holistic approach to treatment of cancer that CPAA calls the ‘Total Management’ philosophy.
