The ICP is conducting a major new analysis of the effect of ageing and other socio-demographic factors on middle income countries, using Mexico as a key example. For 2015 the ICP will be working to model linkage between epidemiological data and cancer health systems impact in India following the publication of Lancet Series on Ageing in December 2014.
