STATEMENT / SUBMITTED BY AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
Inequities in cancer care and outcomes both between and within nations need to be addressed as a human rights imperative as well as an essential component of initiatives to combat poverty and promote sustainable development. (...) According to a study on the “Global economic cost of cancer” by the American Cancer Society and LIVESTRONG, cancer is the disease with the largest global financial impact. (...) At the heart of these serious inequalities is a lack of global political and financial commitment to cancer control. • Spending on non-communicable diseases, despite the fact that they are responsible for 63 per cent of the world’s deaths, is less than 3 per cent of the overall global amount spent on development assistance for health-related problems • Although more than 50 per cent of cancer cases, and over 70 per cent of cancer deaths and 80 per cent of the disability-adjusted life-years lost to cancer occur in low and middle-income countries, only an estimated 5 per cent of global resources for cancer control are spent there • Countries in Africa, for example, account for 0.2 per cent of global medical costs for cancer; a little over 1 per cent of global spending on health; 6.4 per cent of new cancer cases; and 15 per cent of the global population.
