National Cancer Registry

Organisations | South Africa

Published on CancerPort | 24 Mar 2016

The National Cancer Registry (NCR) was established in 1986 and is South Africa’s main cancer statistics source; it collates and analyses cancer cases diagnosed in pathology laboratories (both public and private) nationwide and reports annual cancer incidence rates stratified by sex, age and population groups.

Although the NCR is a pathology based cancer registry, resulting in under reporting of many malignancies, the published data has been used extensively to inform development of the draft national policy guidelines for cancer prevention and control (DOH,2002), to inform cancer research and for teaching purposes.

This data is also used by many other sectors with a keen interest in cancers to inform their policy decision-making processes and/or intervention programs.
