Latin America
Las características de la problemática del cáncer varían ampliamente, y se manifiestan de manera irregular, tanto con diferencias entre los países del estudio, como dentro del territorio de cada uno de ellos.

Este estudio presenta una herramienta de vital importancia para las partes interesadas que procuran comprender la problemática del cáncer. Se trata de la Tabla de Puntuación en materia de Control del Cáncer en América Latina («Latin America Cancer Control Scorecard», LACCS). La LACCS se basa en un notable trabajo de investigación para calificar el desempeño de los 12 países que componen el estudio en diferentes áreas de relevancia directa con respecto al acceso para el control del cáncer. Además de la tabla de puntuación, para el presente informe se realizó una profusa investigación, realizada en forma independiente, y se efecturaron 20 entrevistas a expertos en cáncer de la región y del mundo.
