Kenyan Network of Cancer Organizations is the National umbrella body of cancer NGOs, patient groups and community-based organizations that are active in different aspects of cancer control.
The Kenya Network of Cancer Organizations represents cancer NGOs active in cancer awareness and patient support in Kenya. We envision that by pooling our resources and ideas, we can walk a long journey, make a greater impact and touch more lives together. Let’s join hands in the fight against cancer. Please send membership enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stand out and be counted. Volunteer your skills and time with us and together, we will make a difference. It is our pleasure to work with people willing to volunteer with us.
KENCO working with conviction that nothing should be done for cancer patients and survivors without our contribution and involvement has successfully advocated to get state and non-state actors to include us cancer survivors in various committees and working groups
As a member of KENCO, we are able to work with other organizations in their areas of strength. If we find a cancer patient who needs complementary therapy, we refer them to Faraja Cancer Support. If it is a patient with advanced diseases and in need of palliative care, we then refer them to KEHPCA (Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association). All members work to complement each other
Being part of KENCO has brought great benefits to our awareness and advocacy activities in Turkana. We work in a region where the word ‘Cancer’ is rarely mentioned by the locals and KENCO has provided us with a platform to learn and benchmark from the diversity of skills and knowledge in its membership.
