President at the IASLC, Giorgio Scagliotti stated that the association has made great progress in a mere two months after the announcement of founding the Lung Ambition Alliance. New initiatives of Alliance, such as those in Lung Cancer Care (ILC2), exemplify association’s shared goal to work with the global community and promote ambitious in-country solutions which potentially would enhance lung cancer patient survival rates and also transform patient care.

ILC2 program is appealing enrolled patient organizations that focus on lung cancer, across the globe, to submit the proposals that have the capability to enhance survival into their home countries and transform patient care.

The program is created in identification of the high variation in the management of lung cancer across the globe, and very limited local obstacles to quality care that should be considered while developing solutions convenient to patients to address them.

The Lung Ambition Alliance has built an interactive booth where participants will understand integrated quality care in lung cancer is, while getting access to important resources of quality care along the way. Moreover, participants will also get a chance to provide feedback on this experience with this patient journey.

The Lung Ambition Alliance would officially accept grant proposals in November 2019 and would examine and then select those proposals which have fulfilled the funding criteria.
