dc.descriptionA journal article on radiation oncology practices in Africa and Ontario, Canada.en
dc.description.abstractCancer is a major disease category in higher-income countries (HIC), In HIC, health resources are substantial, with budgets for health care exceeding 10% of Gross Domestic Product of large economies. This resourcing is many times higher than that in low- and-middle-income countries (LMIC) where there are fewer infrastructures and less political and sociocultural support. However, cancer is an increasing concern in LMIC's due to improving longevity and the changing prevalences of etiological agents and broader determinants of disease. Indeed, global mortality from cancer exceeds that from tuberculosis, malaria and HIV-AIDS combined2, and there are many more cancer cases in LMIC than in HIC.en
