  • In 2018, the global incidence of new cancers was estimated at 18 million cases.
  • From 2008 – 2020, the cancer incidence count increased from 715,000 to 1.1 million in 54 African countries.
  • In the same time period, cancer mortality count increased from 542,000 to 711,000.
  • It is estimated that by 2040, Africa will have an increase of 2.1 million new cases and 1.4 million deaths of all neoplasms combined.
  • Uganda is one of the countries with highest burdened of cancers in the world
  • For example, in Uganda cervical cancer just like other cancers is characterized by late presentation, with more than 80% of women either reporting or being diagnosed late when the cancer is more difficult to treat.
  • This has resulted in low treatment success and survival rates with most patients often referred for palliation, thus quality test and treat initiatives or strategies are key to prevent advancements into cancers
