Chagpar, associate professor of surgery at Yale University, assistant director for global oncology at Yale Cancer Center, and director of the Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital, discusses the importance of reducing the global cancer burden as part of the 2030 sustainable development agenda. “…[I]f we are serious about the goal of ‘ensuring healthy lives,’ how can we ignore the world’s leading cause of death, and a disease that will affect nearly 22 million people annually by 2030?” (10/27).
