In recognition of the need for a more coordinated and multisectoral response to the growing cancer burden in kenya, the national assembly enacted the cancer prevention and control act (no. 15 of 2012) which established the National Cancer Institute of Kenya (NCI Kenya) as a state corporation. The overall mandate of the nci kenya is to coordinate all activities, resources and information related to cancer prevention and control in Kenya. NCI-kenya recognizes that prioritizing and implementing cancer related interventions requires effective engagement and collaboration among all relevant stakeholders. Therefore, a stakeholder’s convention focused on cancer will take place from 2nd to 4th February 2023, culminating with the commemoration of world cancer day. This convention christened "The National Cancer Summit" is envisioned to bring together all stakeholders to discourse on identified areas of interest and to drive collective & impactful actions. Register for the summit

As the country’s lead institution for cancer prevention and control, NCI-Kenya advises the Cabinet Secretary for Health, on policy matters relating to the prevention, treatment and control of cancer. This is through a systematic analysis of all cancer prevention and control activities undertaken by various stakeholders to determine the gaps and make recommendations on the investment priorities for the country.
