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, 2nd Edition book – produced by the American Cancer Society, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and the Union for International Cancer Control – 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, 2nd Edition book available in an easy-to-consume, interactive fashion, and features highlights and downloadable chapters and graphics from the book. It is available in Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, French, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. Support for these translations was provided by UICC member organisations: Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP (UAE)), Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society (Hong Kong), ALIAM & La Ligue (Francophone Africa), Blokhin (Russia), LALCEC (Argentina), TACR (Turkey), Cancer Institute of Iran (Iran) who translated the Atlas and launched the editions regionally.
