About NSCR

In 2009, the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), Society of Oncology and Cancer Research of Nigeria (SOCRON) and the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) conceptualized the Nigerian National System of Cancer Registries (NSCR). Since inception, NSCR has been able to revive national consciousness in cancer registration, successfully setting up cancer registries across the country and in some cases has revived defunct ones.
