The ZNCR hosted the Health Economist from the Centres for Disease Control in Atlanta, USA in August 2017. She was visiting cancer registries in Africa that had been selected by the CDC and the IARC to pilot-test the International Registry Costing Tool (IntRegCosting Tool) developed by the CDC. The ZNCR is one of the five African registries participating in the study. During her visit to the ZNCR, Dr Tangka visited selected data collection sources of the registry including the Avenues Clinic, Oncocare Cancer Centre, the Harare Death Registry and Lancet Clinical Laboratories. She also paid courtesy calls on the Permanent Secretary for Health and Child Care, the WHO Representative and the Director of the CDC in Harare.
