Cancer is set to become a growing problem for developing countries and with limited funding available, the formation of dynamic partnerships with international health professionals, transnational bodies, NGOs, international nongovernmental organizations, businesses and international funding organizations, will have a vital role in helping to bridge the funding and treatment gap. If we act now, by investing in the development of low-cost programs to strengthen cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and palliation, there is much that can be done to help improve cancer control in developing countries.
