Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) was established to provide support and assistance to underprivileged cancer patients. The objective is to works towards the Total Management of Cancer as a disease by spreading awareness about root cause of exponential increase in cancer cases, initiate steps for early detection and provide with complete assistance like cancer insurance, patient care rehabilitation, advocacy and research.

Their activities include:

Patient care:  CPAA’s patient care department offers a wide range of assistance on the emotional, financial and medical fronts to cancer patients. They help with making the right connections with the oncologist and assistance required during the treatment. They also guide patients with alternate therapies and educate about the treatment. They provide assistance with  Ambulance services for transportation from ones' home to a treatment center, family support groups, playgroups and creativity classes for children-patients, co-ordinating prostheses (artificial body parts) and even rehabilitation of a patient rendered jobless due to long absence from the job or his/her family members to supplement the family income.

Rehabilitation Centre: CPAA established a rehabilitation center to provide medical, emotional, financial and social aid to the poor and needy cancer patients through a single window. They are given skill training in tailoring, printing, candle-making, book binding, box-making, envelope-making, painting and breast prosthesis- making, which helps them, find jobs post treatment. During the training period, patients or their family members are given a monthly wage, conveyance expenses, children’s school fees, medical aid and rations from the food bank. 

Advocacy: CPAA is not only active in raising awareness through screening and prevention, but is also an active crusader when it comes to effecting policy through advocacy. It is a process of campaigning or debating an issue to come up with a consensus on course of action to change the situation. CPAA has also successfully led a campaign against chewable tobacco, a major menace in India.

Cancer Insurance Policy: CPAA introduced the Cancer Insurance Policy in collaboration with New India Assurance Company. The policy is available to healthy individuals who have not suffered from cancer in the past.
