The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is pleased to announce that Reducing Social Inequalities in Cancer: Evidence and Priorities for Research (IARC Scientific Publication No. 168) is now available for sale in print format. The book is also available free in PDF format.
The book highlights the large variations in cancer incidence, survival, and mortality that exist between countries and, within countries, between social groups. Cancer inequalities, which have major economic implications, are in large part preventable, although this may require concerted action at many levels. Three research priorities have been identified to reduce social inequalities in cancer.
