Welcome to Kenya Cancer Association

Kenya Cancer Association (KENCASA) is a voluntary run non-profit making organization established in Kenya in 1995 after recognition that Cancer was emerging as a leading cause of death in the country.


Extensive cancer awareness campaigns across the country, running free breast and cervical cancer screening campaigns targeting rural population in partnership with other organisations and providing support for the establishment of cancer support network for survivors groups.

KENCASA undertook the first media training on cancer targeting all media houses where over 70 journalists were trained on pertinent issues of cancer.

KENCASA also successfully advocated for and contributed to the development of National Cancer Control Strategy of 2011, and provided leadership in the drafting the National Cancer Control and Prevention Act 2012.

More recently KENCASA successfully implemented the American Cancer Society (ACS) sponsored project called the Meet the Targets project (MTT).

KENCASA is licensed by the American Cancer Association to hold the Relay for Life event.
