The Cameroon Oncology Centre has an authorization to treat Cancer by the Ministry of Public Health and National Radiation Agency.
It offers state of the art radiotherapy with a ready team of knowledgeable experts and scientists. The radiation treatment regimens include 3D conformal radiation therapy, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Dynamic Arc Therapy.
COC is equally only one of 4 cancer centers in Africa that have met the stringent standards set by the United States Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG).
It is also the only cancer treatment center in Africa approved to participate in International Atomic Energy Agency Radiation Therapy protocol for treatment of bulky tumours anywhere in the body.

The Medical Linear Accelerator owned by the COC remains one of the most expensive medical equipment in the world, valued at several Millions of Dollars. The computerized medical linear accelerator is miles ahead of the Co-60 radiotherapy based technology developed in 1960. It represents Cameroon paradigm shift in the fight against cancer.
It provides upto date medical for over 70 patients on a daily basis using electrons and photons.
COC is located in Bekoko, the outskirts of Douala and is headed by its founder and CEO Process Paul Mobit and a host of Oncologists, and medical physicist, scientists amongst others.
