Volunteer Abroad with ASCO’s International Cancer Corps

20 Dec 2012 5:58 PM

ASCO’s support of Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO), an international medical education organization, provides an opportunity to strengthen cancer care medical centers in low-resource countries. By volunteering for HVO’s education and training programs through the International Cancer Corps (ICC), oncology professionals can share their medical expertise and build long-term, supportive relationships with the clinicians who provide cancer care in these countries. Make a profound difference in the cancer care provided at hospital host sites outside the United States when you travel for a one- to four-week educational visit to assist local physicians in enhancing their capacity and knowledge.

Current ICC sites include:

  • Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  • Hue, Vietnam
  • Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Information on current and upcoming ICC sites is available at Members interested in learning more about volunteering for HVO through ICC should send an email to, or contact HVO by sending an email to
