Every year, over 10 million individuals worldwide are killed by cancer. The disease imposes a massive impact on countries and communities. Cancer control attempts to reduce this burden. Cancer prevention, early detection and diagnosis, therapy, and palliative care are all part of it.

Many cancers can be avoided by lowering risk factors, as well as by immunization and screening. Others can be identified, diagnosed, and treated early in their development. Even in advanced cancers, pain can be relieved, disease progression halted, and patients and their families helped to manage.

Cancer control aims to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of cancer, as well as to improve the quality of life of cancer patients in a defined population, by implementing evidence-based interventions for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care.

Up to ten individuals will be chosen to learn more about global cancer prevention and to collaborate on projects relating cancer priority topics.
