    Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) is a state-of-the-art cancer centre located in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.
    It is a project of the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust, which is a charitable organization established under the Societies Registration Act XXI of
    1860 of Pakistan. The institution is the brainchild of Pakistani cricket superstar, Imran Khan. The inspiration came after the death of his mother,
    Mrs. Shaukat Khanum, from cancer.

    Recently, the plans to build the second Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Peshawar are underway.
    The construction work for the project is started and the hospital is expected to be functional in about 3 years.
    Funds are being raised for the cause and the government of Pakhtunkhwa province has donated 50 Canals of land for the hospital.

    Mission statement :

    To act as a model institution to alleviate the suffering of patients with cancer through the application of modern methods
    of curative and palliative therapy irrespective of their ability to pay, the education of health care professionals and the
    public and perform research into the causes and treatment of cancer.

    History :

    Designing and execution of the master plan was overseen by Dr. Nausherwan K. Burki, MB, PhD, FRCP, FCPS, FCCP, of the University of Kentucky Medical Center,
    Lexington, Kentucky, USA in collaboration with an international team of cancer physicians and research workers. Designing and architectural services were
    provided by Arrasmith, Judd & Rapp, Architects in Health Planning of Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Architectural details were handled by Messrs.
    Nayyar Ali Dada & Associates of Lahore. Local engineering was performed by Messrs. Progressive Consultants, Lahore. Ground was broken in
    April 1991 and the hospital opened its doors on December 29, 1994.


    Board of Governors :

    The Hospital is a project of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust, a non-profit legal entity established under the laws of Pakistan.
    The Board of Governors formulates overall policy and consists of bankers, researchers, businessmen and physicians.
    The Hospital is managed by a professional team from clinical, administrative and nursing backgrounds.

    Research :

    Research is needed to develop better ways of detecting and treating cancer and to improve cancer care.
    Over the coming years, SKMCH&RC's expanding knowledge of cancer genetics will have a major impact on its ability to predict an
    individual's level of risk of developing cancer, to detect and diagnose cancer early and to select treatments which are most
    likely to be effective. Ultimately, the genetic revolution may lead to ways of preventing cancer.
