The National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP) was established in 1980 on the recommendations made by a World Health Organization (WHO) team to the Ministry of Health after a detailed study on mortality and morbidity of cancers in Sri Lanka.

NCCP is the national focal point for prevention and control of cancers in the country. It is also responsible for policy, advocacy, monitoring and evaluation of prevention and control of cancers and conducting surveillance of cancers and facilitating research related to cancer.

NCCP coordinates with all cancer treatment centres, national level institutes (Eg. Family Health Bureau) and provincial health ministries to implement cancer control activities in Sri Lanka.

Currently NCCP is situated at Natrahenpita, Colombo 05. Adminstrative units, Technical units and Health Informatics unit are located at the ground floor of the Public health Complex.  A Central Cancer Early Detection Centre is located at a seperate private building, which is rented by the Rotary Club of Colombo at Narahenpita.

NCCP activities are supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office Biennium. The NCCP is further supported by the jointprogramme of  WHO, International Atomic Energy Authority (IAEA) and Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) for improving facilities for improving facilities for cancer care and capacity building.
