Qatar to spend 4 million on cancer preventionQatar has announced a new proactive campaign against cancer in the country.  It attempts to up the quality of care received by citizens, and is the first national health campaign to be launched in Qatar.  It covers everything from stop-smoking clinics in primary care clinics, to education materials for children, to the opening of brand new cancer facilities.

The strategy is expected to cost about $604 million, but the potential benefits should be much higher.  After setting up screening facilities around the country, patients will have access to a specialist if initially diagnosed within two weeks.  By 2015, the goal is to be seen by a specialist within two days.  This will help to reduce the number of cancer-related fatalities in the country, which is rising.
