Two recently published studies provide state-of-the-art evidence on the varying pace of improvement in survival across different cancers, and regarding inequalities in cancer survival between countries and regions. These studies offer rich and contrasting data that can guide policy priorities and research initiatives, and showcase the need for further development of population-based cancer surveillance across the globe.
