Advancing the Global Fight Against Cancer
Cancer causes 1 in 8 deaths worldwide and is rapidly becoming a global pandemic. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, there were 12.7 million new cancer cases in 2008. If rates don’t change, the global cancer burden is expected to nearly double to 21.4 million cases and 13.5 million deaths by 2030. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the toll of cancer and other chronic diseases is greater in low- and middle-income countries where people develop chronic diseases “at younger ages, suffer longer – often with preventable complications – and die sooner than those in high-income countries.” The economic toll is equally alarming; in 2008, cancer accounted for nearly $1 trillion in economic losses from premature death and disability.
