Cancer accounts for nearly one in six deaths worldwide, that’s more than HIV, malaria and TB combined.1 The impact of cancer isn’t uniform. In fact, the majority of deaths from cancer occur in less economically developed countries.2 We want to address this disparity.
Global oncology can be defined as the practice of oncology in settings with limited healthcare resources. This field presents the opportunity to improve and save lives on a huge scale.
We are here to put global oncology in the spotlight. We will present a series of interviews, led by Dr Katy Piddock, with experts in the field of global oncology. We hope this resource will provide a platform from which we can learn, be inspired, come together and ultimately act.
