WHO FCTC GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE HUB ON SMOKELESS TOBACCO
The World Health Organization Framework convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) has designated the National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research as WHO FCTC Global Knowledge Hub on smokeless Tobacco (KHSLT). The primary objective of this hub is to collect/create evidence on different aspects of smokeless tobacco (SLT) and develop a knowledgebase for different stakeholders. The hub may take help of other agencies in this exercise. The KHSLT will assist Member States in improving SLT control in consultation with WHO FCTC Secretariat.
The SLT hub isdeveloping a searchable web portal of SLT related information such as epidemiology, manufacturing process, health effects, product constituent’s, prevention and control policies, population based cessation interventions etc. KHSLT is collecting and analysing the global and country specific data on SLT burden, It is involved in dissemination of the produced material via varied channels to relevant stakeholders (via web portal, consultations at request, training, workshops and conferences).

INDIA AGAINST CANCER
"India Against Cancer" is a portal that provides information on the leading cancers in India with a major focus on awareness, prevention and treatment of these cancers. The portal currently focuses on information for the general public and patients and will be upgraded in the near future to include relevant details for health care providers.
The health promotion clinic was started in Feb 2014 at NICPR. It functions in the OPD rooms situated in the clinical oncology wing, ground floor.The timing of the clinic is from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday.
1. To screen for preventable cancers like oral, breast and cervix.
2. To evaluate the screen positive individuals for confirmation of precancer/cancer.
3. Referral of appropriate patients to the tertiary care centre who require further evaluation and treatment.
1. Recording demographic parameters.
2. Anthropometric measurements which includes height, weight and BMI.
3. General physical examination.
4. Oral examination with naked eye.
5. Breast examination of female patients.
6. Complete gynecological examination including Pap smear of women above 30 years.
7. Symptomatic treatment.
8. Counseling regarding diet and risk factors of cancer.
9. Referral of appropriate patients to the tertiary care centre who require further evaluation and treatment.
1. Breast clinic on every Friday in collaboration with Department of Surgery, AIIMS. Women who are diagnosed to have lumps/nipple discharge will undergo cytology at NICPR and are subsequently followed up in the breast clinic by surgeons from AIIMS. Women, in whom surgery is indicated, are invited to attend surgery OPD at AIIMS and are operated without any delay or long waiting period.
2. Oncology clinic on every Monday in collaboration with Department of Radiotherapy, AIIMS.
The Clinical division of the Institute extends the cancer screening facilities to the rural areas of Gautam Budh Nagar district by organizing screening camps at primary health centres (PHC) and community health centres (CHC) with the help of State Health authorities. Screening and awareness camps are also organized at CGHS clinics, ESI hospitals and nearby government institutions. Individuals attending the camps are screened for oral (visual examination), breast (clinical breast examination) and cervical cancer (Pap smear and VIA). Women diagnosed to have abnormalities on clinical breast examination are invited to attend breast clinic at NICPR which is run by Prof Anurag Srivastava, Head, Department of surgery, AIIMS and his team on every Friday 2 pm. Women positive on VIA examination and Pap smear are invited to NICPR for further evaluation using Colposcopy and biopsy if needed.
List of screening camps organized by NICPR:
Clinical breast examination:25
Pap smear: 17
Oral examination: 27
Clinical breast examination: 30

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) originated at the University of New Mexico, USA is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities. The mission of Project ECHO is to develop the capacity to safely and effectively treat chronic, common, and complex diseases in rural and underserved areas, and to monitor outcomes of this treatment. More information on Project ECHO is available at their homepage http://echo.unm.edu/about-echo/model/
Project NICPR ECHO: Empowering with Knowledge and Skills in Cancer Prevention
NICPR ECHO empowers health care providers to update knowledge and skills in the area of cancer prevention. This entails incorporating cancer screening programs using the ECHO model to improve capacity and access to specialty care for rural and underserved populations.
Mission of NICPR ECHO: The mission is to build capacity in the area of cancer screening services among health care providers. This will empower them to carry out screening independently thereby enabling their services to be accessible to every eligible citizen in India.
There is an estimated burden of over 1 million individuals who were diagnosed with cancer in India in 2012. The three most commonly occurring cancers in India are breast, uterine cervix and oral cancers, together accounting for one third of India’s cancer burden. All three are usually detectable at early stages, and malignancies of the oral cavity and cervix have precancerous stages that are amenable to secondary prevention. Therefore, screening and early detection of these three cancers will help to markedly reduce the cancer burden in India.
NICPR organizes the cancer screening training by following modes:
