International Cooperation in the Alleviation of Human Suffering

World Health needs require international partnership and cooperation, particularly with low and middle income countries (LMICs). While there is a need for continuous work to reduce premature deaths related to cancer, AIDS, endemic infectious diseases, and other ailments, diseases, wars, earthquakes, tsunamis, other disasters require prompt assistance, supportive care, and relief of pain. In this review, we will focus on how cancer care, suffering and pain, and how quality of healthcare can increase patient satisfaction and reduce inequalities around the world.
