The National Cancer Control Strategy for Kenya, 2017-2022 recognized that cancer research is a central strategy in all cancer control planning in the country, and identified the priority research topics in the various domains of cancer control. The recent Cancer Research Agenda: Priorities for effective cancer control in Kenya summarizes the national research agenda for Kenya, and aims to serve as a quick reference document for researchers working in various organizations, either in academia, research organizations, public health institutes as well as independent investigators, locally or abroad, to partner with the government in cancer control through research. This research agenda therefore can be utilized for planning research projects as well as advocating for funding for cancer research. It can be used as an example for other countries to follow the model or adapt to their local context.
