Our current knowledge of the epidemiology and treatment outcome of lymphoma in low-income countries is very limited. In the poorest countries only a small proportion of patients have access to treatment while clinical research is almost non-existent. In order to address these problems and discuss potential solutions a Workshop on 'Epidemiology and Management of Lymphoma in Developing Countries: Challenges and Opportunities for International Collaborations' was held during the 10th International Conference on Malignant lymphoma in Lugano, Switzerland in June 2008 under the sponsorship of UICC, ESMO and ESO. We report here a summary of the discussed issues with some reflections on this workshop.
