The continuing and escalating global fight against cancer demands new tools and the latest available data and trends. The Cancer Atlas website and The Cancer Atlas, 3rd Edition book – produced by the American Cancer Society, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and the Union for International Cancer Control, launched at the World Cancer Leaders' Summit in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan in October 2019 – provide a comprehensive global overview of information about the burden of cancer, associated risk factors, methods of prevention and measures of control. 

The Cancer Atlas website makes select data from The Cancer Atlas, 3rd Edition book available in an easy-to-consume, interactive fashion, and features highlights and downloadable chapters and graphics from the book. 

A translation of The Cancer Atlas to Arabic, in collaboration with the Friends of Cancer Patients (FoCP), has been published and is available for download.
