The women of Hawaii and Pacific Islands and our community medical center participants are all equal partners in this effort. Below are our partners who help us do the work we do.
University of Hawai’i Cancer Center
The registry is sponsored and hosted by the University of Hawai’i Cancer Center. Its purpose is to develop new strategies for discovery, drive findings into clinical practice, and deliver the optimal outcome when a patient is faced with the prospect of treatment and recovery. It also houses the Hawai’i Cancer Consortium, whose members also support our work.
Hawai’i Tumor Registry
The Hawaiʻi Tumor Registry is responsible for cancer surveillance in the state of Hawaiʻi. HTR cancer data is used to produce cancer incidence and mortality rates in order to track cancer trends in the state and nationally, and to serve as a resource for cancer research and public health activities. With Hawaiʻi’s unique multiethnic population, the HTR has played a key role in understanding racial and ethnic differences in the burden of cancer.
