Pathology Capacity in SSA

An on-line survey of pathology capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) was conducted between 2011 and 2013 by ASAP members. Surveys were available in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. The link was sent to more than 200 pathologists – both in Africa and to those collaborating in Africa. The information requested included numbers of pathologists and technicians, training positions, work load and workflow, infrastructure and availability of cancer care (oncologists, chemo and radiation therapy). The complete survey (in four languages) can be found at the following link:

The data was organized by region (East, West, Southern and Francophone Africa) and can be viewed in map or graph form below. In addition, to view number of responses, please click on Summaries.
