The Nag Foundation is a non-governmental organisation that was established by K. K. Nag Pvt. Ltd in 1989. It began as a public charitable trust that played a major role in promoting local artists and art in Pune. The foundation changed its mandate to Cancer Care, Research and Education, in 2011.
Our primary focus now is Promoting Excellence in Cancer Care through Education, Research, Advocacy and Support.
The main purpose that drives us today is to reach a point where we can provide accessible and affordable cancer care to patients, as well as spread awareness and educate the masses about different types of cancer, symptoms and treatments available.
Nag Foundation regularly holds survivor support group meetings and cancer awareness and screening camps. It also supports and organises conferences for medical professionals, patients, survivors and caregivers. We have implemented “training the trainer” projects, where our community health workers have been trained in breast health and clinical breast examination. We have been able to reach out to 3,000 women through this project. The foundation also supports an annual grant for independent research under the Surabhi Nag Research Award.
We help underprivileged patients for treatment and support through our “Herceptin” fund and the “General Medical” fund.
