AORTIC hosts biennial international cancer conferences in various African countries, providing a platform for innovative and interactive educational training across the full cancer-care continuum. Creating a space to forge partnerships, to network, and build capacity.

AORTIC supports Africa-based researchers in order to advance their research skills and development. We develop and support research to create new knowledge and drive innovation in cancer control.

AORTIC aims to develop the next generation of leaders in cancer care, research, education, and advocacy within Africa through our African Cancer Leadership Institute (ACLI).

AORTIC provides and facilitates cancer education and training for African cancer clinicians, researchers, advocates, survivors, policy makers, and students through the AORTIC Virtual Education and Training Programme.
