The Punjab Cancer Registry was set up in February 2005 to determine the population level cancer statistics in the region. Initially, attempts were made to collect information from cancer patients in the region of Punjab. Effective July 1, 2008, the Registry started collecting data on cancers diagnosed and treated among the residents of Lahore district. In 2014, the Registry expanded to four other districts of Punjab including Kasur, Sheikhupura, Nankana Sahib, and Faisalabad. In 2015, the Registry included two more districts of Punjab: Gujranwala and Hafizabad. At present, the Registry has around 39 members in over 15 participating institutions. The Central Office of the Registry is located within the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Center (SKMCH & RC), Lahore, Pakistan. The running of the Registry is also being sponsored by SKMCH & RC.
