The growing cancer crisis in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)enhances the need to invest in equitable international research collaborations that work towards building sustainable research capacity within SSA, closing authorship disparities in the medical literature, and enhancing equity and diversity within global oncology research. Considering historic power imbalances in SSA within the backdrop of colonialism and a growing movement to ‘decolonise’ global health, we argue that high-income country authors should adopt a proactive approach to ensure that local researchers are properly engaged in research collaborations and are given appropriate authorship credit. We outline certain challenges in implementing these correcting measures and propose potential solutions.
