Project Summary / Breve Descrição do Projeto:

High mortality rates due to delayed cancer diagnosis and treatment in Latin America are the lethal consequences of the fragmented healthcare system. A comprehensive approach is needed to address this challenge, which particularly affects disadvantaged population groups. The EU-funded EquityCancer-LA project will develop an evaluation scheme for a multi-component, integrated care intervention to improve the early diagnosis of frequent cancers in healthcare networks of Chile, Colombia and Ecuador. The project will focus on tracing the contextual and cost-effectiveness of an affordable, tailored solution to reduce diagnostic delays, developing a strategy for its implementation in different contexts. It will provide novel data about healthcare inequalities and contribute to clinical practice and research on early diagnosis through an innovative use of e-tools.
