Madagascar is a country island in western Africa, the 4th biggest island in the world. With a population size of 22 million, Madagascar has just two cancer centers, one of which is not even functioning and has no radiation machinery. This leaves them with just one radiation machine for the entire country. That is one radiation machine for 22 million people! Tragic.
There are two cancer centers in Madagascar, Chu-Hjra D’ Antananarivo and Polyclinic Ilafy, both in Antananarivo. Only one center is operational with one megavoltage cobalt machine and brachytherapy.
There are no current missions scheduled and no workforce assembled for Madagascar. Contact us if you are interested in developing outreach efforts in this region.

Each of the many ethnic sub-groups in Madagascar adheres to their own set of beliefs, practices and ways of life that have historically contributed to their unique identities. However, there are a number of core cultural features that are common throughout the island, creating a strongly unified Malagasy cultural identity.
