This article was originally published in Clinica
Early detection is the key to preventing one third and treating a further third of the 10 million cases of cancer diagnosed globally every year. This is the conclusion of guidance published by the World Health Organization (WHO) on best policy and management of national cancer control programmes. "In far too many cases, primary prevention, early detection and palliative care are neglected in favour of treatment-oriented approaches, regardless of whether they are clinically and cost effective," said the WHO in its global assessment of national cancer policy.
