Prof Jane Harries

CANSA Head of Research, Prof Jane Harries, is a member of the AWACAN-ED Steering Group.

The study aims to advance the early diagnosis of cancer in Southern Africa by developing and evaluating electronic tools (e-Tools) to improve care-seeking and reduce healthcare delays in Zimbabwe and South Africa. The focus is on cervical and breast cancer in women and colorectal cancer in men and women, as these are common cancers that have relatively easy methods for detection and treatment, especially in the early stages.

Individual institution pages provide more information about what is happening at each of the three locations – click below for details.
