Source: AJMC, February 2018

Using a global surveillance program that documents cancer survival trends, researchers determined the 5-year survival rates of patients diagnosed with 18 types of cancer worldwide.
In 2015, the CONCORD-2 program established global surveillance of cancer survival, with publication of trends in survival from 1995 to 2009 among patients diagnosed with cancer in 67 countries. CONCORD-3 extended the surveillance of cancer trends to include patients diagnosed up until 2014.
CONCORD-3 includes the records of 37.5 million patients diagnosed with cancer from 2000 to 2014. The data were provided by 322 population-based cancer registries in 71 countries and territories, with data on their vital status at least 5 years following diagnosis or at December 31, 2014. For 47 countries, data were provided with 100% coverage of the national population.
