To facilitate better access to cancer data by boosting cancer registration in sub-Saharan Africa, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Global Initiative for Cancer Registry Development (GICR) and partners, such as the African Cancer Registry Network, have introduced three new collaborating centres in sub-Saharan Africa, with support from the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative.


These three centres are the Training centre in Kenya, Research centre in South Africa and the Collaborating centre for Francophone countries in Cote d'Ivoire



Our article “The evolving epidemic of breast cancer in sub‐Saharan Africa: Results from the African Cancer Registry Network” published in the International Journal of Cancer (IJC) has been selected for a special online Virtual Issue. This manuscript was prepared by Dr Yvonne Joko-Fru, supervised by Dr Max Parkin and Dr Paul McGale (Uni of Oxford).
