Abstract

Cancer is an immense, fast-growing challenge to health and health systems worldwide. Previously thought to be restricted to high-income populations, it is now also recognised as an emerging and critical issue for low-income and middle-income countries. Although the challenge of cancer control in low-income and middle-income countries has been highlighted before,1 a comprehensive, integrated and global health system response was first forged with the work of the Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control, which began in 2009.
