Closing the cancer divide

Our research identifies the startling inequality that exists in cancer care and control between wealthy nations and lower and middle income countries.

Our on-going research has led Harvard University to publish a book entitled: ‘Closing the Cancer Divide: An Equity Imperative’ which was edited by one of our professors, Rifat Atun. In this video he discusses his research and the effects of the book.
