About Us

Kenya Cancer Association (KENCANSA) 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. KENCANSA was officially registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation in 2005 although it had existed previously as part of the Ministry of health since the 1980s. We are a people-centric organization taking the lead in cancer elimination through awareness and support.Amidst the emergence of many cancer organizations, the Kenya Cancer Association (KENCANSA) has remained true in fulfilling its purpose effectively in the areas of education, care giving, service delivery, research and advocacy. We are one of three organisations in Africa that are licensed to organise and host the Relay For Life annual fundraiser walk by the American Cancer Association
