Cancer is associated with significant financial toxicity. However, the existing tools to measure financial toxicity are not socio-culturally relevant for the Indian setting as they fail to record the severe impact of the disease on not just the family but also the generations that follow.

Research Aims

To develop and validate a financial toxicity assessment tool that is socially and culturally relevant for India.

Advocacy Aims

The tool developed will be used to record the financial toxicity of patients with cancer. The evidence generated will push for better social security schemes for patients with cancer.
