Prof Ophira Ginsburg - University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada

Prof Ginsburg talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the different ways in which health equity in cancer can be promoted across Africa, with a particular focus on female cancers and the important role of women in administering care and lobbying policy makers.

She also describes a session on breast cancer and the barriers to screening. She explains how training is more important than equipment that people don't know how to use.

Though her work has been looking at palliative care in under-resourced rural areas, she also mentions the important work of Dr Mary Gospodarowicz in making sure that every government invests in radiotherapy facilities.
