Chapter 7 focuses on the approach taken to cancer control in one country. England was amongst the first jurisdictions to attempt to develop and implement a comprehensive national cancer programme. Many of the individual actions described here are similar to those being taken in other parts of the United Kingdom and in other countries including Denmark, France, and Canada. However, although the actions required are often similar, the delivery mechanisms may well need to be different, depending on the organization of health services within a particular jurisdiction.
