Cancer Information in Other Languages

With the increasing diversity in many countries, some CIS have information specialists who can provide information in more than one language while others use an interpreter service. An interpreter service is a three-way call between the client, the interpreter, and the information specialist. These types of calls are more expensive and tend to last longer but offer a practical alternative to the provision of a service in several languages. 

We have put together a list of cancer organizations that provide cancer information in various languages. On these websites, you will also find materials available in PDF format. These websites are intended to be used for general information purposes only.

Please note that there may be important differences in cancer information from country to country. If you need further information, please contact us.
