Previous objectives raised many questions about nature of treatment protocols and policies should be implemented during (COVID -19) Pandemic and how innovative medicines can achieve the previous objectives. At MENA countries (Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, KSA, UAE and Turkey)
METHODs: Integration analysis between International guidelines like (ESMO, ASCO, WHO) and local guidelines local survives with local oncologist at previous countries plus quality of life questionnaires for the patients were conducted. Cost Analysis from health systems for all oncology expenditures. One way sensitivity analysis was conducted for all parameters affecting on practice adaptation to ensure validity and accuracy
RESULTS: Innovative medicines had positive impact on Enhancement of patient’s outcomes and resources utilization via implementation efficient Periodization criteria as following
