Groundbreaking Alliance: ICPO Foundation and NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd. Join Forces to Elevate Education Standards Globally and Spearhead Thriving Theranostics Centers Throughout Africa

Breaking Boundaries in Cancer Care: ICPO Foundation and NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd. Join Hands for a Transformative Collaboration

In a groundbreaking announcement from WIESBADEN, Germany, and PRETORIA, South Africa, the International Centers for Precision Oncology (ICPO) Foundation and NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd. (NTP) have unveiled an inspiring partnership that promises to revolutionize cancer treatment across Africa. Their mission: to not only elevate global education standards in Radiomolecular Precision Oncology (RPO) but also create a network of cutting-edge Theranostics Centers, with a particular emphasis on enhancing healthcare access in Africa.

This collaboration between ICPO Foundation and NTP represents a pivotal moment in the field of Radiomolecular Precision Oncology. Together, they will leverage their vast medical and scientific expertise and extensive networks to shape the future of RPO education and infrastructure on the African continent.

The partnership will commence its transformative journey in South Africa in September 2023, with the launch of the ICPO Academy for Theranostics, an innovative platform that blends e-learning with on-site nursing nuclear medicine programs. As part of this initiative, NTP’s global experts will lend their insights to enhance the academy’s content and facilitate translations and certifications tailored to specific African countries.

But that’s not all. Drawing upon NTP’s rich history of industrial innovation in Africa, ICPO and NTP are set to establish practical training centers across the continent. These centers will complement the e-learning experience, providing hands-on training to the most accomplished graduates of the ICPO Academy. Together, they aim to democratize access to RPO by expanding the ICPO Theranostics Center network to African nations where NTP is active, ensuring that advanced RPO imaging and therapies are readily available to cancer patients.

Mr. Oliver Buck, Trustee of the ICPO Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “Theranostics, with its remarkable track record in diagnosing and treating cancer, is poised to make a profound impact across Africa through the ICPO/NTP collaboration. We are thrilled to partner with NTP to provide standardized education, foster training, and increase access to Radiomolecular Precision Oncology for African patients.”

Mr. Thabo Tselane, Group Managing Director of NTP, shared his excitement, saying, “We are elated to launch this monumental partnership with the ICPO Foundation. By championing standardized, high-quality education for medical professionals in Radiomolecular Precision Oncology, we are dedicated to expanding patient access within Africa’s burgeoning healthcare landscape. Together, we can bring life-changing Theranostics to regions where access to such treatments has been limited or nonexistent.”

This collaboration represents more than just a partnership; it’s a commitment to transforming cancer care and patient outcomes across Africa, marking a new era in the fight against cancer.
