The King Hussein Cancer Center is a cancer care medical center in Amman, Jordan which It treats both adult and pediatric patients. It is a free-standing, independent, non-governmental, nonprofit organization established by a royal decree to combat cancer in Jordan and the Middle East region. In 1997, the Al-Amal Center, meaning "The Center of Hope", opened its doors. This much-needed cancer-specific hospital was established to provide the many patients in Jordan with quality care comparable to that offered in the West. To honor the late King Hussein, who had died of cancer, the center was renamed the King Hussein Cancer Center in 2002.
From 2002-2006, the hospital intensely focused on areas of quality control, and the recruitment of highly qualified staff. The focus, from its inception, was to deliver the highest level of care in a safe environment.
The foundation and center is run by a board of trustees consisting of a dedicated group of prominent volunteers and chaired by HRH Princess Ghida Talal. The director general of KHCF is HRH Princess Dina Mired and Dr. Asem Mansour is the director general of KHCC.
The main objectives of the program are to reduce morbidity and mortality from breast cancer through awareness campaigns, early detection and access to screening for all women in Jordan in order to shift the current state of diagnosis to the early stages of the disease, when it is most curable with high survival rates.
