As cancer rates are increasing globally, the gaps in cancer survival rates are widening. Social determinants and social inequalities are disproportionately affecting the world’s most disadvantaged groups, leading to barriers to diagnosis and treatment and subsequently higher rates of mortality. To significantly reduce global, regional, and within-country inequities in access to cancer care, strategies are needed that link evidence-based public health policies to clinical outcomes.
