The government plans to build a cancer institute in the state so that its residents won't need to travel to other places for treatment, even as it will start a dedicated cancer outpatient department at Medical College from next month, said health minister Vishwajit Rane.

The minister on Thursday met officials from Mumbai-based in Panaji to discuss ways to set up a facility to treat cancer patients in the state.

With rising cancer cases in the state of Goa, we are working unabatedly to build a State Cancer Institute' so that citizens of do not have to travel outside the state to seek treatment, he tweeted after the meeting. In another tweet, he said, provides world-class cancer treatment services and facilities. We intend to have a tripartite agreement between the Government of India, the Government of Goa and Tata Memorial Hospital, similar to the Assam model envisioned by Hon PM Shri @narendramodi.

Rane said Tata Memorial will provide all technical support in the areas of services, manpower, training and research.

We shall be starting a pilot from 15th April 2023 where a dedicated cancer OPD will be started at GMC (Goa Medical College). I have given the necessary instructions to Dean of @GoaGmc and Health Secretary in this regard to ensure this is operational on 15th April, he tweeted.
