Cancers are increasingly appearing in resource-poor countries as a major cause of morbidity and mortality. With the epidemiological transition and the ageing of the population this trend will increase.
The Seventieth World Health Assembly 2017 endorsed a set of measures to improve and scale up access to prevention; early diagnosis: prompt, accessible treatment, and palliative care for cancer.
But untill now, little is changing for patients. Due to lack of availability and lack of knowledge, due to inappropriate laws, access to opioids remains difficult.
