Cancer has been regarded as one of the major global public health concerns owing to the morbidity and mortality attributed to them. In-fact, the World Health Organization has forecasted that in the absence of implementation of targeted strategies on a war-foot basis, we are on the track to see a rise in the number of global cancer cases by 60% in the coming two decades, of which 80% will be in low- and middle-income nations. Considering all these estimates, it is high time that the nations act in a targeted manner and start at least with the strengthening of the prevention activities and expedition of research activities. In conclusion, the battle against the prevention and control of cancer needs to be fast-tracked in low- and middle-income nations and we have to work together as a team if we really want to improve the quality of life of the affected people and reduce the incidence of the cancers.
