Cancer incidence in selected municipalities of the Eastern Cape Province, 2008-2012

The Eastern Cape Province Cancer Registry is one of the long-term projects established by the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC). The main objective of the Registry is to provide timely, complete, comparable and high-quality cancer data to policy makers, health professionals, researchers,  non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and communities for better planning and feedback. It is one of the stable rural population-based cancer registries in the African continent and has developed as the only functional population-based cancer registry in South Africa. It has a critical role to play in providing  information about the patterns and trends of cancers for the rural population in the Eastern Cape Province.
