TOBACCO CONTROL ADVOCATES STAND ON INCREASED CANCER BURDEN IN KENYA, B.A.T.’s NEW PRODUCTS AND W.H.O LATEST REPORT ON GLOBAL TOBACCO EPIDEMIC (2019)

Last week on Thursday, the National Cancer Institute of Kenya (NCI-K), based at the Ministry of Health, released a report showing the growing cancer burden in Kenya. NCI Acting Chief Executive Officer Dr Alfred Karagu, who appeared before National Assembly’s Health Committee chaired by Hon. Sabina Chege, noted that overall, cancer kills 33,000 Kenyans every year. The leading is esophageal cancer, which kills nearly everyone who contracts it in Kenya.

According to NCI-K, 4,380 people are diagnosed with esophageal cancer annually, and at least 4,351 die every year, meaning only 29 survive. But they live with crippling post-operative complications. Cigarette smoking is an important risk factor for esophageal cancer, and is the most important preventable cause of many cancers and cardiovascular diseases overall.
