What is Cancer Registry and Statistics Research Fund?

Indian Cancer Society started the cancer registration procedure in 1963, as the first registry in India. We have developed an enormous database on cancer incidence and mortality in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, and Aurangabad and a large number of research articles have been published based on this data. The importance of accurate and latest data in designing a cancer control policy for the country can’t be over-emphasized. The study of trends in incidence, prevalence, and mortality over time provides important clues to whether cancer control is being achieved in the population. Cancer registries are the foundation upon which cancer prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation programs can be built eg ICS cancer registry has been furnishing data to Maharashtra State Government and ICMR enabling them to formulate cancer policies for the country and to allocate funds in a relevant manner.

What is Cancer Prevention Program Fund?

Indian Cancer Society believes that preventing the incidence of cancer is possible through creating awareness amongst the population of India. The incidence of cancer is increasing rapidly, therefore it is important to step up cancer literacy and knowledge amongst the population through various mediums like leaflets, short films in regional languages etc. Our awareness efforts aim to educate people on signs and symptoms of cancer, ill effects of tobacco, and smoking etc. These activities are crucial not only to spread awareness but also to reduce stigma related to cancer.

Literature published across suggests that delay in detection leads to poor survival and early detection leads to better and economic treatment. Poor knowledge of symptoms and erroneous belief related to cancer and it’s treatment seems to be taking a toll and is worrying causes of concern. Being aware of cancer in general helps you to understand the signs and symptoms and also aims to lower your risks of getting diagnosed with cancer. If you believe in our fight against Cancer, make your contribution. Minimum donation Rs 1000
