His Highness Sheikh DrSultan Al Qasimiand Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi were received by Sir HarpalKumar, Chief Executive of Cancer Research UK, and Julian Downward, Associate Research Director at the Francis Crick Institute, who is also the professor in charge of the Sharjah Laboratory, in addition to a number of directors and specialists atthe institute and the British Association for Cancer Research.

As an International Ambassador of the World Cancer Declaration for the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and International Ambassador for Childhood Cancer for UICC, Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi plays a vital role in cross-cultural efforts to fight the disease internationally. Sheikha Jawaher underlined the importance of supporting and funding NCDs and cancer research.

The Sharjah laboratory, which is part of the Francis Crick Institute, was fully funded by Sheikha Jawaher who donated half a million pounds to the Cancer Research UK to support its work and help to train human resources in order for them to move into a new phase of the treatment of NCDs and curb their prevalence. 

The donation comes as part of Her Highness’ nonstop efforts to support programmes, initiatives and action plans to improve treatment for non-communicable diseases, including cancer. The Francis Crick Institute is run by 1,250 scientists and researchers as well as 250 executives representing 70 countries from across the world.

"Over the past hundred years, we have seen that science has unlimited horizons. Diseases that once plagued populations can now be easily treated or even prevented, and we need to do the same for cancer. We are confident that this can be achieved through science, as long as we continue to support innovative medical research. And if we do so, NCDs and cancers will be easily treated,savingmillions of lives and substantial state budgets," Sheikha Jawaher said.

Sheikha Jawaherunderlined the importance of promoting a culture of early detection and follow up, and that the research and treatment of diseases not only benefits the present generation, it is also an investment in the health of our children, and their children to come: “A healthy society is the cornerstone of any civilisation and the progress of any nation. There is a need to alleviate the pain and suffering of those individuals who are affected by non-communicable diseasesand also the communities to which they belong.”

HerHighness added: "Facing NCDs requires an effective and dynamic movement on several levels, including meetings, events and conferences related to research that discuss ways to limit the occurance of these diseases and raise community awareness."

Referring to Sharjah's continuing contribution to the fight against NCDs, Sheikha Jawaher said: "Sharjah's efforts to combat NCDs set a leading model to be emulated by other countries in the world.The emirate launched the ‘Sharjah Declaration on Non-Communicable Diseases towards 2030’, which was endorsed by 230 international experts. It will also hostthe SecondGlobal Non-Communicable Disease Alliance Forum, which is scheduled to take placefrom 9-11,December 2017.

Sir Harpalsaid: “We were delighted to welcome His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan Al Qasimi and Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi to the Francis Crick Institute, one of the world’s leading biomedical research institutes situated in the heart of London.  Their Highnesses generous support of ‘The Sharjah Laboratory’ will ultimately help benefit cancer patients all over the world.  We all understand that cancer is a global crisis requiring global solutions, and that no country or organisation can beat the disease on its own. We look forward to working together in the future and sharing best practice to improve the lives of people impacted by cancer in both our countries and across the world.”

During the visit, Sheikh DrSultan Al Qasimiand Sheikha Jawaher attended the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Friends of Cancer Patients and Cancer Research UK. The agreement was signed by HE SawsanJafar, President of Friends of Cancer Patients Board of Directors, and Sir Harpal.
