Research Driving Health Education & Advocacy

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.

  • Add to global knowledge on cancer

  • Vitalise our role in education and legislation to lower the cancer risk
  • Determine our advocacy role
  • Strengthen our watchdog role
