Global oncology is the area of study, research, and practice that aims to improve cancer care and achieve equity in cancer outcomes worldwide. This field has gained momentum over the past decades with an increasing focus on the worldwide burden of noncommunicable diseases. Low- and middle-income countries account for more than two-thirds of cancer deaths globally. By 2030, cancer will be the primary cause of deaths in low- and middle-income countries.1
