Population growth is connected to the increase in the number of cancer patients, according to Dr. Messaoud Zitouni, charged of coordinating, monitoring and evaluating the National Plan to Fight Cancer (PNAC) in Constantine, APS reported.

Mr. Zitouni, together with the Director General of the National Social Insurance Fund, Tidjani Hassan Haddam, paid a visit to the headquarter of CNAS local management,  pointing out that  there is a  link between the increase in the number of cancer patients and population growth.

The official said that Algeria records about 100 cases of cancer out of 100,000 inhabitants, adding that the treatment and early detection programs make it possible to discover certain forms of cancer earlier and, as a result, contribute to reducing this disease.

The main objective of the National Plan to Combat Cancer is to reduce mortality among cancer patients, the same official added.
