Sanofi Espoir Foundation

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation was created in October 2010 to consolidate more than 20 years of commitment to national and international solidarity.

Its mission is to contribute to reducing health inequalities among populations that need it most by applying a socially responsible approach. Its action lines are focused on three key targets:

  • fighting childhood cancers in low-income countries,
  • improving maternal and newborn health,
  • Improving access to care for the most vulnerable population in France.

The Foundation naturally responds to humanitarian emergencies but focuses primarily on long-term partnerships to act on such recurrent issues as education and prevention, training and access to care.


National Cancer Institute

National Cancer Institute (NCI)- Cairo was established during the 1950s and was implemented through the great administrative efforts of Professor Ahmed Lotfi Abou El Nassr. With the same enthusiasm, Professor Ismail El Sebai introduced radical surgery for cancer and trained a large group of Egyptian surgeons. Thanks to their efforts, Oncology was recognized as a separate specialty by Cairo University in 1959. It included a hospital with 270 beds which was built in the sixties and started operating in 1969. Manpower Included 40 medical staff members as well as, 150 supporting and nursing staff serving in the first year of operation about 5,700 new cases and 8,000 outpatient visits. NCI wishes to control of cancer in Egypt through developing and maintaining integrated quality programs in patient care, research, education, and prevention. They are committed to the multidisciplinary approach in cancer management in which different treatment modalities cooperate rather then compete. Professional and public educations are vital to solve the problem of the late presentation of patients. NCI hospital of 550 beds developed in stages. It is now the largest cancer hospital in the Middle East. This project received valuable support from USAID program of the American government, the European Union, and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP)
