 Golestan Population-based Cancer Registry




Cancers are one of the most common causes of death in all world population. The first step in controlling these diseases in each population is to know their current status in the population. Because of high incidence of cancers, especially upper gastrointestinal cancers in Golestan province of Iran, the Golestan population-based Cancer Registry (GPCR) has been activated in July 2006, as a subdivision of Golestan Research Center of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (GRCGH).

GPCR activites have been devided in two phases. The first was "retrospective phase". During this phase, we collected data of cancer cases in 2004 and 2005. We refered to Archives of all hospitals, pathology centers, center for control of opium drugs in GOUMS and onchology and radiaotherapy centers in Golestan province.

The second phase of GPCR is "prospective phase". It has been started from 2006, is being done at now and will be continued for the next years.

GPCR has been accepted as a voting member in the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) in July 2007.
