ICBP SURVMARK-2 (Cancer Survival in High-Income Countries) will produce high impact cancer survival, incidence and mortality comparisons as part of the International Cancer Benchmarking Partnership (ICBP). The ICBP is a unique and innovative collaboration that brings together clinicians, policy-makers, researchers, and cancer data experts. It aims to measure international differences in cancer survival, and crucially, to identify factors that might be driving these differences.

The ICBP SURVMARK-2 project was launched in July 2016 and is set to be completed in early 2020.
