Healthcare systems need to provide cancer screening, diagnosis and diagnosis at all levels of care, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Monday, and asks members to implement policies that are in place; Prioritizing cancer prevention across departments.
In 2018, 18.1 million new cancer issues were developed around the world, and about 9.6 million people died from the disease. Seventy percent of these deaths occurred in low-income and middle-income countries, including those at the WHO East Eastern Division, the WHO Divisional Director for South East Asia Poonam Khetrapal Singh.
"In 2017, just 30 per cent of countries with low income said that there was insufficient access to screening, diagnosis and cancer treatment. appropriate cancer treatment services.
"That compares to more than 90 per cent of higher-income countries. Only 26 per cent of low income countries have contributed to Getting broader roots in the public sector, continues to be slowly criticized and the lower chance of successful management, "Singh who said on Worldwide.
To accelerate progress throughout the region and indicate that over 67 per cent of local cancer patients are died before the age of 70, Singh emphasized the need to introduce national cancer control programs to health systems at all levels.
"Although third-level services are important, they are expensive and most effective when cancer is detected early.
"To do this, cancer screening services must be available at both secondary and primary facilities, and health workers must be trained to identify the signs and marks. ; it could lead to a positive confirmation, "she said.
She will ask member states to continue to implement policies that are in place; Prioritizing cancer prevention across departments, and # 39; including simple packing of tobacco tobacco (tobacco is the only biggest cause of cancer, which produces about 22 pc of cancer deaths) or does not promote the healthy diet of diet and active lifestyle.
The vaccine programs should also be strengthened to ensure that everyone gets a hepatitis B vaccine and all women who receive a human papilloma virus vaccine, said Singh.
"Importantly, and as World World's theme on Day of the Year, I and I stress, each of us can become a craftsman. By avoiding interests which is linked to cancer, we can reduce our own risk while promoting such peers. In particular, we can also promote high level partnership and national program funding .
"As a solution to the 2014 World Health Convention, due to the prevention and control of control, this should be included in promoting quality mitigation services that care and respect for the patients they need, "said Singh.
As early as 2015 the Divisional Committee adopted a resolution on the way forward for cancer prevention and control, and emphasizing the need to strengthen national programs.
This commitment was reinforced in 2017, when the World Health Assembly decided that a solid approach to the delivery of cancer services was encouraged, and when Global WHO's Initiative for Cannabis was put on launched in 2018.
