SATELLITE DESCRIPTION
This satellite meeting will address cancer research and oncology in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and focus on the need for cancer control to become a global priority.  Cancer research and treatment have become increasingly high-tech and high-priced in the global north/west and the global south is faced with population growth and increased burden of cancer without adequate resources to provide quality cancer care. This creates a massive need for development and implementation of innovative and context-specific solutions to dealing with cancer in LMIC countries.  At the same time, opportunities for eradication of one of the most prevalent and devastating malignancies in LMICs with vaccination against HPV to prevent cervical cancer exist. Lessons learned in LMIC can benefit underserved US and immigrant populations living in low resource settings.
