  1. A computerised cancer registry data and validation system in India : its implications for developing countries.

    Article - En anglais

    The cancer registration system in India, and an appropriate computer program to validate the cancer patient data it generates, are described, with the resource inputs, and outputs of research, training, awareness creation and cancer control, in the context of local health care systems.

    Computer packages already available mostly address the type of data obtainable from western health care systems.

    The same factors that limit health care systems in India, and probably most other developing countries-inadequate health care facilities, skeletal medical records systems, meagre and unavailable vital statistics, few trained staff, funding and computer facilities-also limit the data sent to the National Cancer Registry Programme.
