Although there remain major challenges to the development and improvement of cancer registries across the region, this IARC publication, titled Cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa, is truly a milestone in measuring the depth of registry activity in SSA. The report presents cancer incidence data from 25 population-based cancer registries in 20 countries in the region. Based on periods of diagnosis between 2001 and 2015, the report describes in detail the fascinating cancer patterns in each registry population and the marked variations in the rates of the major cancer types in SSA.
