The NCCN Harmonized Guidelines™ address unique regional needs and resources strongly influenced by the expertise and experience of regional experts. They represent pragmatic approaches that provide effective multimodality treatment options across the continuum of cancer care for resource-constrained settings, while outlining the optimal care these countries aspire to achieve.

The NCCN Harmonized Guidelines™ for Sub-Saharan Africa is joint project between the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), the African Cancer Coalition (ACC), American Cancer Society (ACS), the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), and IBM.

Federal ministries of health and leading cancer centers in Ethiopia, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia, and Uganda endorse NCCN Harmonized Guidelines™ for Sub-Saharan Africa as national standards for treating the growing cancer burden. Together, these countries cover 43% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa.
