A new report by WHO titled "WHO global survey on the inclusion of cancer care in health-benefit package 2020-2021" is available on the portal here. The report offers insight into the types of cancer and cancer services that countries are prioritizing and how cancer services are being delivered in the context of universal health coverage. The report looks at what countries included in their health-benefits packages in terms of types of cancer, screening services, cancer treatments (with particular emphasis on cancer medicines), and palliative and survivorship care.
