On February 8th, 2013, sixteen representatives from ten cancer organizations in Kenya convened near the Yaya Centre in Nairobi. The group varied from focusing on particular cancers (breast, prostate, etc) to particular specializations (prevention, palliative care, complementary therapies, etc). However, all agreed that by working together, the reach of each organization can go farther, and the unified force can impact policy, media coverage, patient advocacy, international recognition, and much more. And thus, the foundation of the Kenya Network of Cancer Organizations was laid. In the coming months, the group will develop a constitution, register as an NGO, develop a plan of action, etc. Stay tuned for great things to come!
