  1. Cancer in developing countries : opportunity and challenge.

    Article - En anglais

    Epidemiologic observations indicate that environment and lifestyle are the major determinants of the geographical patterns of cancer.

    The developing countries, which account for 75% of the world's population, have lower incidence rates of cancer compared with the industrialized nations but bear more than half the global cancer burden.

    Demographic trends resulting from economic progress (decreasing incidence of infectious diseases, population growth, aging, and urbanization), coupled with increased tobacco consumption and dietary changes, indicate that developing countries will bear a continually increasing proportion of the world's cancer burden and its accompanying demand for the provision of costly treatment programs.
