Short Communication

A current view of oncology in Argentina

Since 2010, with the creation of the National Cancer Institute, the Argentine Republic has been tackling the battle against cancer as a genuine public health problem.

Today in Argentina, there is a “cancer policy” whose pillars are prevention, education, assistance, and research.

In this article, we provide information about the incidence and mortality of the tumours most common in adults and children, and details of some epidemiological aspects and advances Argentina has achieved in the battle against cancer in the past decade.

Keywords: Argentina, oncology, National Cancer Institute (INC)
