Patient Care

What we do
We at the Indian Association of Blood Cancer & Allied Diseases (IABCD) believe that each individual has been granted with healing power within themselves. Our medical team trained in the field of blood diseases, cancer medicine, facilitates the healing process with the help of the state of the art tools using transfusion medicine therapy. The team constantly endeavours to use all possible avenues and innovative therapies to heal the whole person, so as to improve quality of life and restore their health.

The team of IABCD empowers patients to be in the control of their treatment and their life and ensures that at every stage patients remain well informed about their conditions and choices. As our commitment to community and humanity in general, utilize and provide all the resources to educate cancer prevention measures, early detection strategies blood diseases, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention and life style modifications that can promote both the community and individual health physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The team approach is not only providing medical services to keep the suffering children alive but also provide the dignity that is life.
We operate in a manner consistent with scientific guidelines covering quality, transparency, accountability and respecting the rights and values of each individual with dignity.

We believe this is the best way for us to have the greatest impact, because we know that an intelligent network is not only a powerful tool for rendering medical care and services, but also for transforming lives, building community relations, and protecting the society in general.

Blood Cancer and Blood Disorders
Among the 12 major types of childhood cancers, leukaemia (blood cell cancer) account for one-third of childhood cancer. The most common type of leukaemia in children is acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
Over the past 20 years, there has been some increase in the incidence of children diagnosed with all forms of invasive cancer, during this same time, however, death rates declined dramatically and 5-year survival rates increased for most childhood cancers. This improvement in survival rates is due to significant advances in treatment, resulting in a cure or long-term remission for a substantial proportion of children with cancer.
The causes of childhood cancers are largely unknown. A few conditions, such as Down syndrome, other specific chromosomal and genetic abnormalities, and ionizing radiation exposures, explain a small percentage of cases.
