The chances that you will get cancer and die from it depend on where you live. In wealthy nations, the war on cancer is far from over, but personalized medicine and novel treatments like immunotherapy have significantly improved cancer survival. The opposite is true in poorer nations, especially in sub-Saharan Africa where cancer deaths are rising fast, including from cancers that are preventable or treatable with routine measures. In advance of World Cancer Day, speakers discuss developments in cancer treatment and prevention, and the prospects for closing the global cancer divide.
Speakers Cary Adams Chief Executive Officer, Union for International Cancer Control
