National Cancer Platform Association Information National Cancer Platform Association Information
Platform was founded on 4th February 2015. It is currently being registered as an Association.
Purpose and mission statement:
The National Cancer Platform Association brings together all Maltese non-government organizations working in the field of cancer to collaborate together in order to ensure a holistic, co-ordinated and sustainable service for all cancer patients and their loved ones.
Each organisation remains autonomous, keeps its identity and way of working, while providing comprehensive information and support to its members.
Through the Platform, members of organisations that offer support to people effected by cancer and their families, become familiar with the work being carried out by other organisations offering similar, or complementary services. The Platform facilitates exchange of information to the benefit of the service users.

Passi & Beyond
On the 3rd of February 2016 the platform officially opened an office at Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Center which offers the concept of a ‘one stop shop’ of all NGO’s. Through this office we direct patients to the NGO that would best suit their needs at any particular stage during their cancer journey. We also visit patients in wards daily.
