Message from Conference President
My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Cancer is one of the leading cause of death worldwide, with an incidence of 14 million new cases /year with about 1 million diagnosed in India. The prevalence of cancer has increased over the past decade and is expected to rise by 8% in the next 5 years. Regular screening, early detection, and improved therapies have increased the 10 year survival from 61% to 77% in the past decade. However, advancements in cancer treatment has not changed mortality rates.
Addressing the root cause and using holistic healing methods along with the conventional methods would be the best solution. Hence, this year we have selected a theme “Integrative Oncology: Future of Cancer Care”. The 22nd INCOFYRA will make an effort to integrate Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Yoga, Unani, Siddha, Homeopathy and Modern Medicine by bringing prominent researchers and doctors from all these fields under one platform to evolve better cancer care.
We welcome you all to our Prashanti Kutiram campus.
