Who we are
International Cancer Institute
We are a leading organization with a proactively evolving approach in care, research, training, and advocacy with a focus on cancer control in Sub-Saharan Africa. We officially opened our doors and kicked off our operations in May 2019.
Our goal is to produce quality outcomes working with a team of highly qualified health care professionals.
Laboratory & Pathology Services
ICI has a fully-fledged, full-service anatomic and clinical pathology lab offering intensive, customized, and technology-based routine testing; the best in the region. We are registered with the Kenya Medical Laboratory Technicians anf Technologist Board (K.M.L.T.T.B). We provide anatomic pathology, clinical chemistry, Hemato-pathology, Tumor marker testing, among others.
Patient Support & Care
We offer patient-centric care through optimized evidence-based treatments and protocols that reduce cancer and non-communicable diseases (NCDS) burden in the communities we serve. Our multi-disciplinary team of clinical, academic, and supportive care experts gives patients the best early detection, treatment, palliative care, survivorship, and ultimately End-of-Life (EoL) care.
Clinical Care & Early Detection
ICI has invested in state-of-the-art equipment and highly-skilled and motivated staff to ensure patients get the best chances of early cancer detection, treatment, palliative care and hospice. We utilize a Point-of-Care (POC) screening that allows for seamless data collection from our clinics and screening centers allowing us to optimize our services.
Research & Data
At ICI, we utilize Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Essential Clinilcal Data Management through OpenMRS. Our Shining Tower Project in partnership with Pharma has introduced a personalized cancer care in the region. We have partnerships with different countries, counties and companies for both research and advocacy. We have an immune-research and molecular lab as well as Clinical Trials base for oncology and hematology.
Meet Mark Juma Ambuya, a 48-year-old male from Trans-Zoia (Kenya). Early this year, he started having neck pains, coughing, difficulty swallowing, and oral ulcers. He visted a dispensary and then a hospital, where a biopsy was taken and was diagnosed with stage II squamous cell carcinoma of Oesophagus. Despite being given advice on the way forward, he decided, like many do, to seek aid from local traditional herbalists. The symptoms worsened and became very ill. His family was devastated.
Through our Patient Navigator, we got to identify his case and referred him to our clinic for review. He was brought in very weak, unable to walk, a talk by his family but after two weeks of appropriate treatment and supportive care he left walking without the support and gained substantial strength. He was appreciated all the support, love, and care his loved ones offered and the care provided.
Many patients continue suffering, and only present/revisit the hospital when the situation worsens. We would like to encourage everyone to seek timely medical advice from healthcare providers as it prevents morbidity, disability, and mortality.
