IARC/WHO and IACR launch new guidelines for planning and developing cancer registries in low- and middle-income settings
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) today launch new guidelines for establishing cancer registries. The publication, titled “Planning and developing population-based cancer registration in low- and middle-income settings”, provides essential guidance on the key steps in planning a registry, including accessing sources of information, monitoring the quality of the data, and reporting results. The guidelines serve as a vital tool to help low- and middle-income countries attain the highest possible standard of cancer registration, and address the limitations and challenges these registries may face. Cancer registries are critical for evaluating the impact of national control programmes, including vaccination, screening, and treatment efforts. They also serve to catalyse research into causes of the disease.

The tool calculates TNM, Stage Group and other simplified and/or site-specific cancer staging classifications from the basic features of the patient’s disease. Our heartfelt thanks to the many cancer registry colleagues who tested the beta version and provided us with valuable feedback.

IARC Press Release: 1 in 2 countries unprepared to prevent and manage cancers
More than half of all countries worldwide are struggling to prevent cancer and provide treatment and chronic care to cancer patients, warns a recent World Health Organization (WHO) survey for World Cancer Day. This means, currently many of these countries do not have a functional cancer control plan that includes prevention, early detection, treatment and care. There is an urgent need to help countries to reduce cancer deaths and provide appropriate long-term treatment and care to avoid human suffering and protect countries’ social and economic development.
