IARC Regional Hub, Mumbai
In collaboration with the Tata Memorial Centre (TMC), the International Agency for Research on Cancer inaugurated the first IARC Regional Hub for Cancer Registration at the new facilities in the Homi Bhabha block of the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, India on 1 October 2012.
The Mumbai Hub will provide the necessary support, training, advocacy, and research opportunities to cancer registries across the 30 countries in South Central, South Eastern, and South Asia. An important aspect of the Hub operations is an expanding program of direct assistance to registries in the region via collaborative agreements with IARC.
As part of the Global Initiative for Cancer Registry Development in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, the Mumbai Hub at TMC is one of several IARC Hubs being launched across three continents to serve as local resource centers capable of providing developmental support towards, and for, population-based cancer registration in defined world regions.
Till now, we have conducted 47 courses and trained 1190 participants in the cancer registration process. We have provided training to Asian countries like Indonesia, Timor-Leste, Myanmar, Thailand, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Nepal as well as trained the participants from different states of India. Continuous technical support is provided to Timor-Leste, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, and Indonesia cancer registries.
