The National Cancer Institute of Kenya (NCI Kenya) has a mandate to establish and maintain the National Cancer Registry as provided in the Cancer Prevention and Control Act, No 15 of 2012. The Act obligates all cancer care providers to notify the institute on ALL newly diagnosed cancer patients within 60 days of diagnosis.

In line with national efforts aimed at achieving prevention and control of cancer through effective data collection and analysis, the Institute together with other partners developed the national cancer notification tool to be used for data abstraction for the purpose of notification from Facility level to National level
