CRI is growing!

CRI is pleased to announce that our team is growing. We welcome Mr Linda Mbuthini, our new full-time data administrator, who will be supporting the development of hospital-based cancer registries at the UCT/Groote Schuur/Red Cross Children’s Hospital academic complex.

Linda has a post-graduate diploma in Health Economics, a BSc in Health Promotion and is currently completing his MPH in Health Economics at UCT.

He has worked on various TB and HIV programmes and his interests include cancer surveillance, registration and data quality. In his previous project, Linda was responsible for generating and supporting a population-based cancer registry database that has produced high-quality cancer incidence data for the Eastern Cape.

We are thrilled to welcome Linda to the team!
