AWACAN presents a selection of research articles and publications related to early cancer diagnosis and detection in Africa. This is the first edition of our e-Newsletter, which we plan to update and disseminate periodically with contributions from our AWACAN network members. Future editions will include relevant current research and related activities of members.
In this maiden edition, we highlight recent (published within the past one year) research evidence, news and other publications related to cancer screening and diagnostic services in general. This edition also features how these and broader oncology services are being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in African countries.

This and subsequent editions of this evidence summary will be published on the AWACAN website, as well as on the Twitter page of the Cancer Research Initiative (CRI) – @UctCri.
