SURVCAN-3 (Cancer Survival in Countries in Transition) is the third initiative to produce reliable and comparable survival statistics for countries in transition, expanding the coverage area of previous projects. In addition to providing survival estimates for benchmarking purposes in countries in transition, SURVCAN-3 aims to enhance registries’ expertise in collecting the local data needed to participate in this project, as well as to support the local capacity to perform survival analyses in the registries.
The SURVCAN-3 project launched in September 2016. As of April 2017, more than 80 registries in 36 countries have agreed to participate in SURVCAN-3. The project will reach completion by the end of 2018.
