Title of Collaborative Activity:

Global Initiative for Cancer Registry Development

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Cancer incidence and mortality are rising rapidly worldwide, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. There is an overwhelming need for countries to adopt and implement cancer control actions. Yet only one in five low- and middle-income countries have the necessary data to drive policy and reduce the burden and suffering due to cancer. The Global Initiative for Cancer Registry Development (GICR) is a coordinated, multi-partner approach to deliver the required change. Its objective is to make cancer data count. NCI partners with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide technical and financial support to the Caribbean Hub of GICR.
