CANSA ensures that the scientific findings and knowledge gained from our research, realign our advocacy focus (watchdog role), to strengthen our health, and care & support programmes, to the greater benefit of South Africans.

The most cost effective long-term strategy for cancer control, is to help reduce the cancer risk through education and early detection.
