DCP3 will consist of nine separate volumes: eight will focus on a specific disease cluster or population, and the ninth will be an overview with main findings and conclusions about achieving health priorities. Each volume will contain contributions from prominent scholars and practitioners in the field. Similar to the first and second editions of Disease Control Priorities, DCP3 will include an up-to-date comprehensive review of the efficacy and effectiveness of priority health interventions with the goal of influencing program design and resource allocation at global and country levels. In addition, DCP3 volumes will present systematic and comparable ecomic evaluation of selected interventions, delivery platforms, and policies, based on new analytical methods being developed specifically for DCPN. The comprehensive ecomic evaluation will incorporate evidence on intervention quality and uptake, along with n-health outcomes such as equity and financial protection. Cancer is part of a nine volume series for Disease Control Priorities which focuses on health interventions intended to reduce morbidity and mortality. This volume focuses on various forms of cancer, treatment, research and its ecomic impact.
