First Ever Linear Accelerator Installation In Cameroon, Central Africa
ROS is excited to learn of the first-ever linear accelerator installed in the country of Cameroon in Central Africa, a country of 23 million.
The machine was a very basic Varian 21EX linear accelerator, and it was a machine originally sold to a radiation oncology facility in the United States.
Every year, dozens of valuable linear accelerators are traded-in to the manufacturers and “scrapped.” This wasteful practice of destroying such equipment denies access of this life-saving technology to many countries in dire need of cancer care.
Please join us in helping to recycle and re-use, valuable, life-saving equipment. Say “no” to waste and to say “yes” to helping those in need.
