Cancer is a killer disease, especially in developing countries, where 70% of deaths caused by cancer result from the lack of prevention and access to healthcare, as well as limited knowledge of the nature and spread of the disease. Still, there are positive signs. 20 development countries have committed themselves to create national registers of cancer by 2020 - a measure that has only been partially implemented by France to date. It’s an epidemiologic lesson that gives food for thought to the French government.
