GLOBAL OVARIAN CANCER CHARTER
SIX GLOBAL GOALS
Global Priority

Ovarian cancer must become a global priority, so that the increasing burden and challenges of successfully treating women with ovarian cancer are recognized and planned for at local, regional, and national levels.

For a PDF of all of the Global Goals, click here.

X
Rapid Diagnosis

Women must have access to diagnosis without delay. Symptom awareness must be improved so women seek and access appropriate help quickly. Doctors also need support so they know who should undergo testing and that they have access tests without delay so more women can start and tolerate treatment quickly.

For a PDF of all of the Global Goals, click here.

X
Best Possible Care

Women must have access to surgery, treatments, and clinical trials that optimize their chances of survival and quality of life, no matter where they live. Lack of finance should not be a barrier to best possible care, nor should the gap between highest and lowest resource countries widen any further.

For a PDF of all of the Global Goals, click here.

X
Family History

Women and doctors must have access to appropriate and timely genetic testing and counselling. For women with a family history of ovarian and other cancers1 it is important to determine if they or others in their family are also at risk.

X
Data Improvement

The quality and quantity of data fluctuates around the world, hindering abilities to quantify the burden of ovarian cancer or develop evidence-based strategies. Data used to develop cancer control plans and treatments must reflect the diversity of local populations to ensure the best possible outcomes.

X
Information and Support

Women must have access to good, quality information and support in their own language that helps them to live well with the disease. Mental and physical well-being should be addressed and considered in equal measure.

KolGOTrg welcomes the Global Ovarian Cancer Charter because of its ability to highlight the challenges of progress for women with ovarian cancer in low and middle-income countries such as India where we are based and the need to close the gap with more affluent settings. We hope that the work we have undertaken to establish a patient focused clinical research group within a tertiary cancer centre in such a setting, will encourage others down this hard but rewarding path to driving much closer and fruitful engagement with patients and improvements in survival.
