About | Cancer XPRIZE
Early Saves Lives
Globally, there are nearly 500 deaths every hour—or more than 4 million a year—that, with early detection, could have been prevented. The conclusion? Detecting cancers early helps reduce suffering and saves lives. Now imagine how many lives could be saved globally if everyone had access to simple and affordable cancer screening tests.
The current market is not structured to incentivize solutions for early detection and prevention for cancer—the ecosystem remains closed to innovators outside of traditional industry players.
A Comprehensive Solution
The winning Cancer XPRIZE team will develop scalable and culturally sensitive solutions to rapidly, accurately, and affordably screen for early cancers where intervention can reduce human suffering.
