    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2015-11-12) Gelband, Hellen; Jha, Prabhat; Sankaranarayanan, Rengaswamy; Horton, Susan; Gelband, Hellen; Jha, Prabhat; Sankaranarayanan, Rengaswamy; Horton, Susan; Jamison, Dean T.; Nugent, Rachel; Laxminarayan, Ramanan
    From its inception, the Disease Control Priorities series has focused attention on delivering efficacious health interventions that can result in dramatic reductions in mortality and disability at relatively modest cost. The approach has been multidisciplinary, and the recommendations have been evidence-based, scalable, and adaptable in multiple settings. Better and more equitable health care is the shared responsibility of governments and international agencies, public and private sectors, and societies and individuals, and all of these partners have been involved in the development of the series. Volume 3, Cancer, presents the complex patterns of cancer incidence and death around the world and evidence on effective and cost-effective ways to control cancers. The DCP3 evaluation of cancer will indicate where cancer treatment is ineffective and wasteful, and offer alternative cancer care packages that are cost-effective and suited to low-resource settings.
