Volume 2, Cancer, presents the complex patterns of cancer incidence and death around the world and evidence on effective and cost-effective ways to control cancers. The DCP3 evaluation of cancer will indicate where cancer treatment is ineffective and wasteful, and offer alternative cancer care packages that are cost-effective and suited to low-resource settings.

Main messages from the volume include:
* Quality matters in all aspects of cancer treatment and palliation.
* Cancer registries that track incidence, mortality, and survival – paired with systems to capture causes of death are important to understanding the national cancer burden and the effect of interventions over time.
* Effective interventions exist at a range of prices. Adopting “resourceappropriate” measures which allow the most effective treatment for the
greatest number of people will be advantageous to countries.
* Prioritizing resources toward early stage and curable cancers is likely to have the greatest health impact in low income settings.
* Research prioritization is no longer just a global responsibility.

Providing cancer treatment requires adequate numbers of trained healthcare professionals and infrastructure beyond what is available in most LMICs, especially lowincome countries. Careful patient monitoring is a requirement of good quality cancer care and this often involves laboratory tests in addition to clinical examination. Even if financing were immediately available to build or expand a cancer control system, reaching capacity will take many years.
