Cancer, the second leading cause of death globally, remains a significant challenge for societies, healthcare systems, and affected individuals worldwide. Adding to this challenge are complex disparities in access to and use of cancer care, basic and clinical research, and clinical trials, as well as disparities in cultural beliefs and genetics. To improve cancer treatment, it is essential that cancer investigators, cooperative groups, national research institutions, national governments, competent authorities, ethics committees, and pharmaceutical companies come together to strengthen global collaboration in cancer research. Once we reach this goal, the resulting data will be more broadly applicable to all patients. This article reviews the current state of cancer research around the world.
