Default Re: ICMR Cancer

The National Cancer Registry Programme (NCRP) was commenced by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) with a network of cancer registries across the country.

National Cancer Registry Programme (NCRP)

The main objectives of this Programme were:

-To generate reliable data on the magnitude and patterns of cancer

-Undertake epidemiological studies based on results of registry data

-Help in designing, planning, monitoring and evaluation of cancer control activities under the National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP)

The NCRP is a long term activity of the ICMR and the office of the NCRP is located in Bangalore.

It is assisted by a Steering Committee and a Monitoring Committee that meets periodically to oversee and guide its functioning.

Develop training programmes in cancer registration and epidemiology.

Cancer registration in India is active and staff of all registries visit hospitals, pathology laboratories and all other sources of registration of cancer cases on a routine basis.

Death certificates are also scrutinized from the municipal corporation units and information collected on all cases where cancer is mentioned on the death certificates.
Data quality and completeness of coverage is a prime requisite for good cancer registration. This is ensured to the best possible extent by the NCRP.
