ecancermedicalscience is an open access cancer journal focused on under-resourced communities. In order to help reduce global inequalities in cancer care and treatment, we provide free access to all articles from the point of publication and we only charge authors who have specific funding to cover publication costs.
The journal considers articles on all aspects of research relating to cancer, including molecular biology, genetics, pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical reports, controlled trials (in particular if they are independent or publicly funded trials), health systems, cancer policy and regulatory aspects of cancer care.
This special issue investigates the hidden costs of cancer care and how they should be used to inform global policy.
It brings together five original articles which arose from the special working group session on Health Economics at the annual Organisation of European Cancer Institutes (OECI) meeting in Porto 2015.Read the full editorial
