The Aslan Project three-pronged model for sustainable change is multi-disciplinary and centered on building capacity. Designed by our Medical Advisory Board, our team of world-class pediatric hematologist-oncologists and other global experts, our comprehensive and holistic approach seeks to ensure that local health professionals in low-resource settings have the training and tools they need to diagnose, treat, and care for children with cancer.
CAPACITY BUILDING TRAINING
Our volunteer medical experts teach local doctors, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, community health workers, and other health professionals at their local hospitals, online, and abroad to diagnose and treat pediatric cancers and to train future specialists.
COMPREHENSIVE FAMILY SUPPORT SYSTEMS
Through partnerships with local non-governmental organizations, we provide nutrition, transportation, education, skill building, and psychosocial supports to patients and their families.
We work with local hospitals to ensure there are separate units dedicated to the treatment of pediatric cancer, facilitate low-cost procurement of supplies and medications, and introduce data collection and management processes.
