About us

25 Years of Service
Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (CCHRC) is a comprehensive cancer care facility located in the outskirts of Silchar town in the Barak Valley of Assam, India. Cancer incidence in this region is high, and lack of affordable treatment and care leads to patients suffering a painful death.

The hospital is administered by The Cachar Cancer Hospital Society, a not for profit NGO. Nearly 80% of our patients are daily wage workers, agricultural and tea garden labourers and nearly 75% are treated for free or at subsidised charges.

Introducing Our satellite Clinics

cancer care to people in need

Our aim is to create a network of satellite clinics in the region  providing services and interventions that align with prevention of cancer, early detection, health promotion, chemotherapy, palliation, post  operative care, rehabilitation and home care

The goais improved cancer outcomes, detection in early stages, increased cancer survival rates, access to palliative care, promoting healthy lifestyles, better end of life care, affordable access to chemotherapy and improved compliance. To that end, CCHRC is looking
to set up satellite clinics for cancer prevention, better accessibility and
affordable care

The vision to become a state of the art cancer center that will ensure that no individual develops a cancer that can be prevented, that no patient is denied appropriate cancer treatment for want of resources, that no patient dies in agony and indignity and that no family suffers treatment induced poverty and grief.

Each Satellite Clinic shall have clean facilities, 10 day care beds
and 15 medical staff

Our Story

CACHAR CANCER
CLINIC (CCC)
CCHRC has a demonstrated track record of helping underprivileged sections of the society to overcome the huge problem of cancer
In the early days, Dr Kannan noticed that only a few patients, especially from the north, who came for the initial check-up< would not return for a follow-up. Finally, the administration realised that most people couldn t afford the treatment or lived far away. That was when Cachar became an initiative to provide affordable cancer care to all their patients without travelling long distances.
