For the past several years, MAKNA has established ties with healthcare and charitableorganisations in other countries. The efforts have been more of competency building and training as well as sharing of expertise and knowledge with these parties.
The learning curve in achieving our goal has been slightly steeper due to environments that are governed by different set of laws and general practices. MAKNA will continue to try making meaningful inroads in the coming years and to expand its operations into more countries with the right potential, given time. Our current collaborations will go on as we have our sights set on helping poor cancer patients not only in Malaysia but elsewhere as well.
On the international front, we have been working with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) as a full-fledged member of the organisation. Our position has been to align ourselves and participate in programmes that are aimed at raising awareness of cancer and accelerating the fight against the disease.
The International Division of MAKNA was established in May 2008 with the objective of increasing our presence in Southeast Asia and to reach more cancer patients in need. The Division is intent on collaborating with other NGOs across the region in as many ways as possible to increase patients’ understanding of cancer and their abilities to cope with the disease.
In Vietnam, we have made increasing progress by cementing collaboration with the Bright Future Foundation, Vietnam. We have been operating in Vietnam for the past two years, focusing on community development, supporting the development of the Vietnamese National Cancer Registry, advocating anti-tobacco policies and training students of Hanoi Medical University on breast cancer screening.
