In the world's poorest countries, a cancer diagnosis is too often a death sentence. The reason is simple: Treatment just doesn't exist. But just how severe are the disparities in cancer care?

Take our new quiz to find out—and you'll unlock 50 cents to support cancer treatment and all our work around the globe!

Ready for Question 1?

Question 1

Tragically, 9.6 million people die of cancer every year. Take a guess: How many lived in poor nations?

Yep, you got it.

70% of cancer deaths happen in the least developed part of the world. The reason? Care is tragically hard to come by. We're fighting this injustice: Last year alone, PIH brought high-level cancer care to 3,500 people who otherwise would have gone without.

Close, but not quite.

Question 2

As we established, cancer care is scarce in poor countries. So what do you think: What percent of the world's cancer treatment is available in low and middle income nations?

Tragically, you're right.

More than half of people with cancer live in poor nations—where only 5% of treatment is available. We believe cancer care is not a luxury reserved for the wealthy. And we're fighting every day to make good on this belief.

It's even worse.

Question 3

Cervical cancer is preventable and treatable—but in lower-income countries, it's deadly for women. What would you guess: What percent of cervical cancer deaths occur in poor nations?

That's right.

90% of cervical cancer deaths occur in developing countries. In Haiti, it's the single deadliest cancer for women. That's why we're striving to vaccinate as many girls as we can for HPV, an STD that can lead to cervical cancer.

Thanks to your support, we've already reached 25,000 girls in Haiti with this lifesaving medicine.
