The organization has now established its branches in 43 districts of Nepal and has been mobilizing 10,000 volunteers nationwide. NCRS is a pioneer organization for tobacco control in Nepal. NCRS works in both cancer prevention and its cure. Tobacco control is the major preventive activity done by NCRS because it is a sole preventable risk factor for several types of cancer.
