In the context of Argentina this was mainly aimed at those with low or scarce resources, but the Foundation has been recognized as a source of support and information for all the community´s demographical levels.
Emotional support, defend patient rights with government social and health care programs, both public and private, assistance with medication, awareness programs, and provide resource for their social unmet needs. This is mainly achieved through four distinct areas:
- Prevention and Communication of Cancer
- Legal Assistance
- Social Medical Programs
- Our mission is cancer eradication through prevention, early detection, and adequate treatment.
- Fundacion Aciapo is dedicated to the quality of life improvement of cancer patients and their families.
