Welcome to SMOP

Message from the President

Pakistan, like other developing countries is experiencing a rise in the incidence of cancer, late presentations and > 50% mortality rate. Within this context, the Society for Medical Oncology Pakistan (SMOP) will provide a platform for oncology professionals to develop multidisciplinary approaches towards the treatment of cancer patients. At the same time, we would like to encourage indigenous research in providing contextually adapted solutions.

Since more than 30% of all cancers are related to infections, smoking, obesity and major environmental hazards such as air and water pollution in developing countries, SMOP aims to raise awareness in the public on the importance of early screening and preventative approaches.  As oncology professionals, we must educate the public to minimise the risk of cancer and encourage them to have cancers screened earlier so the disease can be treated more effectively.
