During the 2nd Annual Review Meeting of AFCRN which took place in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, 21st -23rd January 2014, it was agreed to conduct a survey to determine some basic characteristics of member registries, to enquire into the nature of any links between registries and their respective Heath Authorities (national and/or local), and to review whether data from individual registries had been used in national or local cancer control planning.

A questionnaire was developed to collect data about the registries. It covered five areas:

  • background,
  • funding situation,
  • data collection methods,
  • registry output and
  • use of data in cancer control.
