War on Cancer Middle East

Cancer in the Middle East is on the rise. Poor healthcare access, late presentation and a change in lifestyles have meant that cancer incidence is due to rise faster than any region in the world by 2030, to almost double what it was in 2012. Yet poor data on cancer incidence, mortality and patient satisfaction, makes meeting the challenge all the more difficult. For patients, overcoming the fatalism and stigma surrounding cancer is an additional barrier to treatment.

In 2015, The Economist Events declared war on cancer at an inaugural summit in London. Since then, we have taken the conversation from Boston to Hong Kong, Singapore to Oslo, to explore the most pressing issues in policy and financing, treatment and care across the globe. Bringing together a diverse audience from the policy, finance, and medical communities, our aim has been to share best practice and to catalyse action; breaking down silos to confront the enormous challenge cancer presents.

War on Cancer Middle East 2018 aims to explore the state of cancer care in the region, sharing and comparing different approaches as well as exchanging insights from the region and the rest of the world. Through robust panel debates, case studies, and strategy sessions, we will explore the evolving policy solutions to the increase in cancer incidence, as well as the innovative financing models that can bridge the funding gap for treatment. Our case studies will tackle some of the issues surrounding fatalism and stigma, while also crucially ensuring that the patients themselves are front and centre of the discussion. We will bring together leaders from government, healthcare, academia and industry to assess how the Middle East can manage its cancer burden.

Highlights:
Cancer control in the Middle East
The patient’s perspective
Putting vision to work
Early detection and screening
Treatment and palliation
Financing the gap
Innovation in health systems
