Cancer in China, India and Russia

The Lancet provides some global insights on cancer with a free article. The abstract provides the following overview:

“Collectively, China, India, and Russia account for around 40% of the world’s population, experience 46% of all new cancers worldwide, and account for 52% of cancer deaths globally. However, a sizeable gap exists between disease burden and the ability of these countries to afford effective control measures, and considerable sociopolitical, cultural, and environmental factors further complicate the situation. In this Commission, and in linked Comments, a multidisciplinary team of health-care professionals, policy makers, and others address the challenges to providing cancer care in these countries and identify the critical steps needed to effect change.”
