RESEARCH


Research is one of the most important process to combat cancer, since it is only through research that we can learn about the causes, prevention and treatment of a cancer. However there are only limited studies done on cancer in Bhutan. In order to make the most accurate cancer information available to the healthcare providers and cancer patients, BCS is working on maintaining the National Cancer Registry in collaboration with Ministry of Health (MoH) and JDWNRH. BCS will make small research grants available for those interested in doing cancer related studies. We will also explore other possible cancer related studies and carry out more research to obtain the most accurate information available for reference, in order to build a strong national database on cancer for cohort studies.
