[Correspondence] Improving the quality and coverage of cancer registries globally

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2013 report1 provides mortality estimates for 240 causes of death but also incorporates several criticisms of the methods used by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in developing national estimates of cancer incidence and mortality worldwide in GLOBOCAN.2 We remain encouraged by the overall comparability of the two sets of estimates, yet IARC’s approach differs from that of GBD, and warrants further comment.
