Affordable Cancer Care In India 2022 Event On May 14

Cancer has recently overtaken heart disease as a leading cause of death worldwide. Global cancer burden of 18.1 million new cases every year, out of which 9.6 million die (GLOBOCAN IARC 2018) Signifies enormity of this challenge.

The global cancer burden is expected to be 28.4 million cases by 2040. This means there would be an increase of 47 per cent in the number of cancer cases when compared to 2020. GLOBOCAN predicts record numbers by 2040, a true ‘Cancer Epidemic’ (NICPR) in the making. In order to control cancer globally, efforts should be made to build a sustainable infrastructure for the dissemination of cancer prevention measures. Also, there should be a provision of cancer care in transitioning countries. As you read this, 4.2 million Indians are living with the disease. More than 14 lakh new cases are registered every year and 8.5 lakh people diagnosed with cancer die each year. Moreover, around 50 per cent of cancer patients and their families in the country struggle financially to manage care for the disease.
