Cancer’s Global Footprint: Interactive Map Launch

December 03, 2012|

Cancer is often considered a disease of affluence, but about 70 percent of cancer deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Explore this interactive map to learn about cancers that disproportionately affect poorer countries.

The map accompanies the radio and special online series, produced by PRI's The World, in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center. In Joanne Silberner's five-part series we meet patients, doctors, and public health advocates on the front lines--and explore the political, cultural, and logistical obstacles that make tackling cancer so difficult across most of the globe.
