KENCANSA through a robust advocacy strategy seeks to ensure that those bearing the burden of cancer in the country have their voices heard on issues that are important to them and have their rights defended and safeguarded. That their needs are genuinely considered when important decisions such as cancer policy formulation and resource allocation are made.
KENCANSA engages policy makers and other stakeholder to influence policy formulation, resource allocation, and use research information to create awareness of cancer risk factors. KENCANSA will also continue to influence the operating environment through policy level advocacy. Advocacy will endeavor to increase the engagement space between CSOs, government and all relevant stakeholders. Specific advocacy issues will focus on increasing access to healthcare and enhancing public resource allocation to cancer care and treatment.
