The objective is to disseminate the available data on the incidence of cancer in children around the world. This will be achieved through the publication of a monograph, the third volume in the IICC series (IICC-3). Both print and electronic versions are envisaged, with the first results to appear in 2016.
Data collection, verification, analysis, and evaluation are currently under way in collaboration with the IICC-3 Editors. By October 2015, data had been received from 418 cancer registries, including 26 in Africa, 45 in Latin America, 75 in North America, 95 in Asia, 164 in Europe, and 13 in Oceania. Validation and selection of the datasets for the monograph must be completed in 2015.
