4. Research 

One aspect that sets MAKNA apart from other cancer related institutions is its commitment to the discovery of cures or treatment for cancer. Its investments are long term and in the best researchers in the country who demonstrate the most potential to succeed at the highest level.

As the thought of cancer often instills great fear and is perceived as fatal, MAKNA aspires to take on the challenge to change this perception and to give hope to cancer patients. This is where the Cancer Research Award plays an important role towards giving an avenue for local researchers and thus contributing to the ultimate aim of alleviating pain and suffering of cancer victims locally and globally.

" We must prevent cancer initiation whenever possible, eliminate it in early stages when it does occur, and help cancer patients live with, rather than die from, the disease "
