Today we released a brief report that recommends practical, effective and affordable strategies to address cancer prevention and treatment needs for countries at all stages of economic development.
Delivering Hope: Cancer Care in the Developing World includes case studies from Rwanda and Jordan and describes how existing health systems designed to treat infectious diseases in low-income countries can be strengthened to address the urgent and growing cancer needs of developing world populations.
Recommendations included in the report focus on interventions that will be the most effective and have the biggest impact on quality of life and survival. The report does not prescribe a new global health fund or dramatic shifts in current global spending.
