Varian Equipment Selected to Equip New Cancer Center in Algeria and Enable More Advanced Radiotherapy Treatments for Patients
Date:1/24/2013

Algeria is experiencing an increase in cancer incidence, driven by the growth and ageing of its population as well as a high prevalence of smoking. The World Health Organization's (WHO) GloboCan project indicates that in 2008, Algeria had 28,736 cancer cases. This is projected to rise to 35,628 in 2015, an increase of almost 25 per cent. Lung and breast cancers are two of the most common cancers in Algeria, accounting for over a quarter of new cancer cases every year.
