Data released in September 2018 indicates that the global cancer burden has risen to 18.1 million new cases and 9.6 million cancer deaths. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) estimates that one-in-five men and one-in-six women worldwide will develop cancer over the course of their lifetime, and that one-in-eight men and one-in-eleven women will die from the disease. This accounts for more deaths worldwide than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.
Cancer is an urgent global challenge and all stakeholders including the governments, civil societies, scientific and medical communities as well as the private sector must take measures to scale up prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and care services.
