Abstract

This publication addresses medical devices that can be used for management of cancer and specifcally describes medical devices for six types of cancer: breast, cervical, colorectal, leukemia, lung and prostate. 

This publication is the outcome of a project developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in response to the need for a model reference list of basic and priority medical devices required for cancer management, with the goal of increasing access to these medical devices especially in low- and middle-income countries .
