Kisumu City Cancer (KCC) is a community-based organization (CBO) that was
established in 2016. KCC is registered with the Department of Social Services registration
No. KSM CENTRAL /WINAM/CBO. 00471016. The head office is located in Kisumu City,
Shauri - Moyo estate within St. Mark’s Methodist church compound.
KCC was started from the background of challenges faced by cancer patients and persons
living with HIV/AIDs (PLHIVs) in accessing treatment, Care, and Support. Cancer
patients/survivors and PLHIVs had difficulty getting a forum to share their experiences
and challenges, as a result they suffer from anxiety, stigma, and discrimination associated
with cancer and HIV/AIDs.
