Abstract

The Registries provide clinically relevant human data to healthcare professionals and researchers for increasing our understanding of a clinical condition and for treating or counselling patients. Planning healthcare without reliable data from disease registries may prove to be a futile exercise resulting into loss of resources. Hence disease Registries are vital for monitoring the incidence, prevalence and mortality rates, the effectiveness of national disease prevention and control initiatives, resource allocation, and public policy related to the specific disease control.
