Cancer will claim the lives of 9.6 million people in 2018, accounting for one in eight of all deaths among men and one in 11 among women, the WHO’s cancer research agency said.

U.S. congressional committee members warned that Washington’s funding of the World Health Organization’s cancer research agency could be halted unless it is more open about its operations.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is seeking a new leader for its France-based cancer research agency to replace the current director, Chris Wild, from January 2019.
