HISTORY (cancer Institute story)

The idea of ​​establishing the institute began in 1990 when it was noticed that the percentage of cases of oncology patients increased significantly

In 1991, the idea of ​​allocating the hospital’s headquarters as a nucleus for the establishment of the South Egypt Cancer Institute emerged due to the need of this large area for this advanced service for the people of Upper Egypt from Beni Suef governorate in the north to Aswan in the south.

In the same year, the Board of Directors of Assiut University Hospitals agreed to allocate the old university hospital building as the headquarters of the Oncology Hospital.

At this time, work began with the two units of bladder tumors and treatment of children’s tumors. The institute was part of the university hospital and under the supervision of the Assiut Faculty of Medicine. It did not have an independent entity and continued until 1994 AD. After that, a new thought was made to establish an independent institute for tumors in Upper Egypt, and this was met with many financial and administrative difficulties. .

On August 14, 1997, the Supreme Council of Universities Resolution No. 350 was issued approving the establishment of the South Egypt Cancer Institute at Assiut University, provided that the internal regulations of the National Cancer Institute in Cairo are applied to it.

On 29/12/1999, Presidential Decree No. (470) was issued to establish the South Egypt Cancer Institute - the institute has been working since that date as an independent scientific institute affiliated with Assiut University
