Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, with 1.3 million people being diagnosed every year in APAC. Majority of these cases are diagnosed at late stages, when survival rates are low.

Pan Cancer

Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide, responsible for nearly 1 in 6 deaths in 2020, majority of which coming from Asia. With an ageing population, and emerging factors like diet and environment, the burden of cancer is only projected to increase.

Liver Cancer

Known also as the silent killer, chronic liver disease is big, complex and accelerating. Driven by viral infection, diet and lifestyle, 1.5 billion people worldwide are in jeopardy. Of these, 80% of new cases and 72% of total deaths occur in Asia alone.

Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer has a high disease burden in APAC, with 50% of global cases and 60% of global deaths occuring in APAC. Almost all (99%) cervical cancer cases are linked to infection with high risk human papillomavirus, which is easily preventable through vaccination, advances in screening, and appropriate treatment. However, barriers still exist that prevent some women from being screened for cervical cancer.
