According to the WHO, 7.6 million people worldwide died from cancer in 2008 and more approximately 70% of cancer deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries — more than 5 million deaths per year in developing countries from cancer.
KEI notes that there have been attacks on India, in its efforts to expand access to patented cancer drugs.
