ABSTRACT
The aim of this study is the analysis of the historical complexities associated with cancer registries in Spain. After the acceptance of the International Classification of Diseases in 1900, the first cancer incidence survey was in 1902. Following the international initiative by the German Central Committee for Cancer Research (DZK), the Instituto Rubio conducted a census of all cancer patients under medical treatment. Spain attended the meeting in Berlin where the International Association for Cancer Research was founded (1908), and the International Union Against Cancer (IUAC) constitutional congress was held in Madrid (1933). Nonetheless, Spanish was absent from the first cancer registries conference (Copenhagen, September 1946), and from the WHO committee to support cancer registry programming (1950). As a result, contemporary history of Spanish cancer registries starts as late as 1960 in Zaragoza, particularly through the establishment of a Latin language speaking countries registries team.
