Description:
Projections of the number of cancer cases are valuable in setting priorities for prevention and in anticipating the demand for cancer services. Adequate health service planning, especially with regard to staff training and recruitment, and the development of long-term capital projects such as radiotherapy units, requires estimates of the likely future burden of cancer. This is the third set of projections of future cancer cases produced by the National Cancer Registry. Although a wide range of methods is available for projecting cancer incidence and mortality [1-8] we have, to a large extent, adhered to the methods used in previous reports [5, 9, 10], as they have been proven over time and also provide some continuity.
