Socioeconomic inequalities in cancer mortality between and within countries in Europe: a population-based study

A new study, led by scientists from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in collaboration with researchers at the Erasmus Medical Center (Netherlands) and other international partners (including Imperial College London, University College London, and the United States National Cancer Institute Center for Global Health), investigated socioeconomic inequalities in cancer mortality in Europe.

This research fills a major gap in the current knowledge and mapping of socioeconomic inequalities in cancer in European countries, by providing a comprehensive and comparative assessment of several aspects of cancer inequalities between and within countries.
