How to help a loved one who has cancer

The number of cancer patients dying in India continues to grow and is the worst in the world, according to data released by the World Health Organization (WHO).

India has the highest cancer death rate in the developed world with an estimated 1.8 million cases per year, or 1,072 per 100,000 people, the WHO said.

This compares with 1,034 per 100 000 people worldwide.

The rate of deaths in India is up by 8 per cent on the previous year, according the WHO, but still is much lower than other countries with comparable cancer rates, such as France, Italy and Germany.

In a statement, the World Trade Organization (WTO) said India had a “very high” rate of cancer deaths and “very low” mortality rates.

India has the second highest number of cancers per 10,000 population in the global community behind only the US, the statement said.

The WHO said the number of patients who died of cancer in India was 1,094 per 100 million people, a decline of more than 6 per cent compared with the same period last year.

The numbers of people with cancer, including lung cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer, have also been rising in India.

India has one of the highest rates of invasive cancer in the western world, the largest in the subcontinent.

The country is also one of India’s biggest consumers of antibiotics, according a recent study by the government.

However, the country’s overall health system is weak, with high rates of under-treatment, lack of access to treatment and limited availability of quality, affordable healthcare, the UN health agency said.

In India, there is a high proportion of rural people with poor access to healthcare, said Sankar Singh, executive director of the Indian Association of Medical and Dental Training (IAMDT).

He said the lack of availability of safe and effective medical equipment was also a major issue.

In the last year, the Indian government has implemented a raft of measures, including raising the minimum age of entry to practice dentistry from 18 to 26, making it mandatory for all candidates to have primary education and training, increasing the minimum income to Rs 2 lakh per annum and requiring all primary schools to enrol students with special needs.
