Improving equity in access to early diagnosis of cancer: implementation research in different healthcare systems of Latin America (EquityCancer-LA)

Project description

Enhancing accessibility to cancer care in Latin American health systems

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.
