An international partnership of over 20 organisations worked together to complete a worldwide survey questionnaire which benchmarked current standards against international standards set by WHO/International Narcotics Board, responsible to implement and control UN drug conventions. The survey results provide evidence of necessary policy reform to improve the management of severe cancer pain and to relieve unnecessary suffering worldwide. They also provide relevant worldwide data for both the WHO Access to Controlled Medications and WHO Cancer Control Programs. The data, the most comprehensive of its kind, represents 83% of the population surveyed, it will be officially published in 2013 and supported by an international advocacy campaign to promote wider access to opioids to relieve unnecessary suffering worldwide.
