KREFTFORENINGEN (THE NORWEGIAN CANCER SOCIETY)
The Norwegian Cancer Society (NCS) contributes to targeted efforts in cancer information, prevention, advocacy, research, care, and international cooperation.
In 2017, the organisation had 118 000 members, 25 000 volunteers and 190 employees, who are all dedicated to promoting cancer cause.
NCS works continuously to improve society’s attitude to the prevention and treatment of cancer. We fight cancer locally, nationally and globally through research and preventive measures, information, support, advice and lobbying.
NCS leads the way. We have introduced a number of vital improvements within the field of cancer. Mammogram screening, the Norwegian Cancer Registry, the Varde centres for patients and their families, and cancer coordinators in the municipalities are just some of the measures we have initiated.
