Between 2020 and 2022, with the advent of the pandemic and the restrictions imposed by governments around the world, the diagnosis and treatment of cancer were negatively affected, as the pandemic caused a reduction in access to health care due to the closure of health facilities to reduce exposure to COVID-19, this has resulted in delays in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, which may have caused, in the short term, difficulty in diagnosing cancer in the early stages and increased incidence of cancer, followed by an increase in late-stage disease and, ultimately, increased mortality [1]. According Globocan Angola has a total population of about 32,866,268 people, where the number of new cases of cancer is 20,327 cases and the mortality rate is 12,599 deaths, it is estimated that the prevalence of cancer in the last 5 years was around 40,752 cases [2]. Data from IACC (2012 -2016) revealed that from 5609 new cases, most were males, 9.7% were in children below the age of 15 years. The five most common cancers were breast (21.4%), cervix (16.8%), prostate (7.1%), non-Hodgkin lymphoma (4.5%) and Kaposi sarcoma (4.3%), looking to these data we can have a picture of how important the prevention, screening and early diagnosis and a fitness program is to improve the quality of life (QOFL) of patients [3].
