INCTR’s Cancer Registry Program Updates

The East African Cancer Registry Network (part of INCTR's Cancer Registry Program) organized a four-week training course for staff of two new cancer registries – Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) in September/October. The course included the basics of tumor pathology, classification and coding, and the principles of cancer registration (case finding, abstracting, coding and data entry). The participants also received an introduction to the cancer registry software (CANREG-5) which will be installed in their registries. The faculty members were Professor Henry Wabinga and Ms Sarah Nambooze (Kampala), Ms Anne Korir (Nairobi) and Ms Cecile Ingabire (Rwanda), assisted by junior registry staff in Kampala and Nairobi. Four newly appointed staff from Ethiopia were supported by local funds, while the new registry director in Dar es Salaam (Dr. Amos Mwakigonja) received a travel grant from INCTR.
