The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) has announced the availability of multiple non–English-language versions of the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology® (NCCN Guidelines®) for numerous high-incidence cancer types. These treatment recommendations can be accessed for free at NCCN.org/global or via the Virtual Library of NCCN Guidelines App.

The NCCN Guidelines are the recognized standard for clinical direction and policy in cancer management and the most thorough and frequently updated clinical practice guidelines available in any area of medicine. They are written by subject-specific, multidisciplinary panels of experts from across 30 leading cancer centers in the United States. There are currently 24 global adaptations and 230 translations of NCCN resources across 47 different languages.
