In collaboration with the World Health Organisation, ICCP has coordinated a global review of national cancer control plans. Over a period of six months an international group of 67 expert reviewers based in 16 different countries reviewed over 500 documents from 158 countries. The analysis showed the importance of NCCPs in providing strategic direction to national cancer control plans and to reducing the cancer burden. The findings have been published today in the Lancet Oncology, ahead of the World Cancer Congress.
