Association of Residents in Radiation Oncology (ARRO)

The Association of Residents in Radiation Oncology (ARRO) established in 1958 is an independent organization showcasing radiation oncology residents of United States. This site is beneficial to students, residents and other members of the radiation oncology community as it provides useful resources, information and links to them. Developing countries occupy 85% of the world’s population but only one third of the world’s radiation power are in their possession. Radiotherapy is a cost effective cancer curing treatment but is complicated. ARRO's Global Health Initiative is to appoint the radiaton oncologists to achieve more enhancing health care for all global citizens through human collaboration outreach, education and research. The developing countries accounts to about seven out of ten cancer deaths occurring worldwide. Cancer is the leading death cause among other chronic diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.It has been estimated that nearly12.7 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed  per year worldwide and majority of these cases are registered in the developing countries. Most developing countries do not have access to the radiation equipment and the ones that they may possess are outdated and insufficient.In USA approximately 105,000 people utilises a single machine within which  2 percent of machines are cobalt In Africa, one machine is dedicated for the treatment of 4.8 million people and 48 percent of machines are cobalt.In South America one machine is utilised for the treatment of 640,000 people of which 39 percent of machines are cobalt.These statistics reveal the inequal distribution of thee radiation power and therefore the urgent need in global cancer care. The ARRO Global Health Initiative aspires to increase awareness regarding these disparities and opportunities leading to advancement in cancer care worldwide. ARRO’S Global Health Initiative Goals and Objectives:

  • To identify domestic and global disparities in cancer prevention and treatment.
  • To assess international health care systems and identify multidisciplinary oncologic challenges in resource-poor settings.
  • To develop the skills necessary to implement sustainable oncologic care and cancer prevention systems abroad.
  • To improve internationally collaborative research efforts by offering educational opportunities in basic science and clinical research methods, research ethics, and global health topics.
