A roadmap for stronger cancer control worldwide

3 oktober 2019

Navigating the growing burden of cancer and providing quality care is a challenge for governments worldwide. A new roadmap has been developed by the IAEA and the World Health Organization (WHO) to help countries design national cancer control programmes and will provide guidance on available tools and resources for implementing services related to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, as well as palliative care, with particular focus on diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy.
