Enrico Anglesio 2020 Virtual Prize

The Enrico Anglesio Prize is awarded every year to a young cancer epidemiology researcher, in two occasions:

  1. It has been part of the regular programme and prize awarded at the IACR's Annual Scientific Conference; and 

  2. At the yearly Groupe pour l’Epidémiologie et l’Enregistrement du cancer dans les Pays de Langue Latine (GRELL) Meeting.

With the cancellaction of conferences for 2020 due to COVD-19, the Fondo Elena Moroni and the scientific committee of the Enrico Anglesio prize decided to organise a virtual edition for 2020.  

For the virutal prize, candidates are invited to present a written paper on their work on cancer epidemiology and/or cancer registration, that, in normal times, they would have presumably given as an oral presentation at the IACR or GRELL conference, and subsequently submitted for publication in a Journal.  READ more of the prize details and rules here:  https://www.fondoelenamoroni.org/en/the-prize/

Results Overview of the Cancer Registries and COVID-19 Survey

In mid-May, the COVID-19 and Cancer Task Force, through IACR and GICR, reached out to cancer registries with a survey to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer registration. A total of 218 cancer registries from 90 countries participated in this survey.  We therefore extend our most sincere thank you to each registry for taking the time to provide feedback on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their respective cancer registry operations

We are pleased to share an overview of the survey results:

Covid19 survey1 Respondents

 

Two out of three cancer registries indicated their operations, including staff performance and funding, were disrupted due to the pandemic.

Covid19 survey1 Reg operations

 

For 71% of registries, staff attendance was affected by the pandemic.

Covid19 survey1 Staff

 

We will provide the detailed results from this survey very soon – please stay tuned!

Again, thank you to all our colleagues for helping us assess the impact of COVID-19 on cancer registration.  The information, comments and suggestions you shared will help all those in the Task Force, IARC, GICR and IACR in particular, gather and provide targeted support for registry activities in the near future.

COVID-19 and Cancer Registries Survey

IARC IACR GICR2020

 

IARC, GICR and IACR is currently inviting cancer registries to respond to an online survey to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer registration. The survey is being sent by email to registries and is likewise available here: https://is.gd/IACR_GICR_Survey1

PDF copies of survey translations in French, Spanish and Portugese are available for download here:

Encuesta de registros de cáncer IARC-IACR-GICR - español 

Enquête IARC-IACR-GICR sur les registres du cancer - français

​Pesquisa sobre registros de câncer da IARC-IACR-GICR- Português

The survey is in support of the COVID-19 and Cancer Task Force to help coordinate efforts to synthesize and rapidly disseminate data on how the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is affecting cancer outcomes worldwide.   

The deadline for completing the survey has been extended to 22nd May 2020.

Cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa

In time with the African Cancer Registry Network (AFCRN)'s 2018 Annual Review Meeting held on Oct 8-10 in Entebbe, Uganda, IARC and AFCRN published Cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa.

IARC Publication 167, 2018, includes the latest cancer data for the region. The Cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa volume brings together population-based cancer incidence data from 25 cancer registries in 20 sub-Saharan African countries that are part of the African Cancer Registry Network. The compiled data in this volume, presented and commented upon by covered population and by anatomical site, are of tremendous value to the assessment of the pattern and evolution of cancer in Africa, as a means of elucidating, confirming, and evaluating causes of the disease.
