Cancer Atlas - third edition (Arabic translation)

First published in 2006, The Cancer Atlas by UICC, the American Cancer Society and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is a vital compendium of facts, figures and information about cancer for policymakers, advocates and the general public.

The UICC member organisation and Vanguard partner Friends Of Cancer Patients (FoCP) in the UAE produced the Arabic translation of the third edition, which draws attention to inequalities in accessing quality cancer care, the risk factors driving cancer patients and the means of tackling the cancer burden through access to information and services. It serves to support the call for action on cancer in Universal Health Coverage at the international to the community levels, detailing strategies for cancer prevention and control.
