About The Study: Researchers found in this study of 22 high-income countries that cancer care spending in 2020 was not associated with age-standardized cancer mortality rates, and that although the United States spent more on cancer care than any other country, this expenditure was not associated with substantially lower cancer mortality rates.
Authors: Cary P. Gross, M.D., of the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, is the corresponding author.
