The project will adapt, implement and evaluate a multi-component integrated care intervention for the improvement of early cancer diagnosis in the three participating Latin American countries. In addition to contributing to capacity building in different areas, EquityCancer-LA is expected to provide:
• Robust evidence to inform health policy design on the contextual effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of an affordable and tailored intervention to reduce diagnostic delay; and a validated strategy for large-scale implementation in LA and other low- and middle-income countries.
• Novel data on delays and key barriers and facilitators to early diagnosis and social inequalities in access.
• Digital tools to improve clinical practice and research on early cancer diagnosis.
