Survivorship is an important part of the cancer control continuum and is increasingly relevant in Africa due to the rise in cancer burden, improvement in access to cancer diagnosis and treatment, growing public awareness about cancer survivors’ needs, and increase in cancer survival rates. A 2022 paper by Garton et al.An analysis of survivorship care strategies in national cancer control plans in Africa” examined how survivorship care is currently represented in NCCPs in Africa. Data from this analysis has been used to develop NCCP Survivorship profiles for 21 African countries. These profiles are now available on the ICCP portal for Algeria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
