Tackling the burden of prostate cancer in Latin America: The prospects for patient-centred care

Prostate-cancer incidence, prevalence and mortality are rising rapidly in Latin America. Risk factors are highest in Brazil, which has a population that is ageing more rapidly than those elsewhere in Latin America and a greater proportion of males of African descent than in other countries in the region. Studies show that populations of African descent have the highest prostate-cancer incidence rates, for reasons that are still not fully understood. Other risk factors, such as unhealthy diets, are also becoming more prevalent in the region.

Tackling the burden of prostate cancer in Latin America: The prospects for patient-centred care

Prostate cancer is placing an ever-growing burden on already strained Latin American healthcare systems, as both the incidence of the disease and mortality rates rise. For the purposes of this report, Latin America encompasses the territory from the northern border of Mexico to the southern tip of South America, including the Caribbean.

Prostate cancer is the leading cause of male cancer-related deaths in the region, and the disease and economic burden is set to rise in tandem with longevity and changes in lifestyle and diet.
