IHME’s policy report The Challenge Ahead: Progress and Setbacks in Breast and Cervical Cancer shows that the risk of dying from cervical cancer fell in nearly every country from 1980 to 2010, because deaths from cervical cancer are not increasing as quickly as population growth.
IHME's policy report The Challenge Ahead: Progress and Setbacks in Breast and Cervical Cancer, published in 2011, shows the number of cases and deaths from breast and cervical cancer are rising in most countries, especially in the developing world, where more women are dying at younger ages.
