OECD's new report Beating Cancer Inequalities in the EU: Spotlight on Cancer Prevention and Early Detection provides cross-country comparisons and policy perspectives on major cancer risk factors, screening programmes and early diagnoses. It also addresses issues related to provision of high-quality cancer care, with a focus on disparities by region, socio-economic status and gender. The
examples discussed in the report show that strong political will and targeted actions are needed to make prevention an effective priority.
