Thousands of people worldwide have died from skin cancer and tens of thousands more are suffering from lung cancer.
The first images of people with the disease were released by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) on Wednesday, and reveal the extent to which people in developing countries are still not getting enough medical care and carers to keep them healthy.
Many of the images are from cancer wards in cities such as Dhaka, Bangladesh, and have been published online for the first time.
“We know that we can’t keep up with the number of cases and deaths,” said Dr Joachim Knausgaard, WHO Director General.
“The new figures show that it’s not just a matter of the number, but the quality of care that needs to be maintained.”
In countries with high rates of skin cancers, such as Bangladesh, there is a strong relationship between the age of a patient and the extent of their illness, with a person who is in their early 20s dying earlier than their peers.
This means that, even in wealthier countries, many of the patients who survive the disease are still far from being able to maintain their own health.
“They’re just not getting the care they need,” Dr Knaussgaard said.
“If you’re going to be in the country for any length of time, you should have some sort of support from the government.”
“I think that the WHO is quite surprised at the scale of this problem.
This is a global problem,” he added.
We’re hoping that people in rich countries will be better informed about the issues, and that governments will make more effort to ensure that they are in tune with the needs of their populations.” “
That’s what we’re hoping to change.
We’re hoping that people in rich countries will be better informed about the issues, and that governments will make more effort to ensure that they are in tune with the needs of their populations.”
A WHO statement said: “We recognise the importance of supporting the health of patients and support the development of the healthcare system to provide them with a better quality of life.
The WHO also said it was working with the World Bank and the United Nations to provide health and medical services in more developing countries. “
Wider efforts need to be made to ensure access to treatment for people living with a diagnosis of skin and mucosal cancers.”
The WHO also said it was working with the World Bank and the United Nations to provide health and medical services in more developing countries.
The World Bank has already started work on a program to provide services to over 2.7 million people in 10 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Cambodia.
“With the World Cup just around the corner, we’re very pleased that we’re helping to make sure that this game continues to be a global spectacle and that our contribution is recognised and appreciated,” said Katharine Scholz, World Bank Country Director for Africa.
“I’m sure there will be a lot of discussion and debate as we look at this.
But I think what is very important is that the World Cups have a real positive impact, because it’s going to make the world a more open and inclusive place.”
The latest WHO figures, released on Wednesday morning, showed that skin cancer deaths in the US were at their lowest level in nearly a decade, but still more than double the global average.
The number of deaths from lung and lung cancer dropped by half, and the number who had cancer in the head and neck region of the body was at its lowest level since 2004.
WHO figures for India showed that the number with skin cancer had fallen by more than a third in the last decade.
The figure for South Africa was up almost 20 per cent.
In Bangladesh, the number for the head, neck and chest region had fallen 17 per cent, and in the neck region, down 14 per cent in a decade.
But in the whole of the developing world, the rate of skin lesions had fallen only by about a quarter.
The WHO said the figures showed that governments were taking steps to improve access to primary and secondary care.
The numbers released on Thursday showed that in the three months to March 31, the WHO had received 6.5 million letters from the public requesting a free skin test, compared to 2.2 million letters in the same period last year.
The latest figures also showed that more than 1.5 billion people in the world lived with some form of skin-cancer.
