Prof Ahmed Elzawawy - President of AORTIC

Prof Elzawawy talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the various ways in which cancer care can be improved in Africa.

The fight for better value cancer care is important, he says, but the best long term benefits will be seen from the medical training of many more people.

The huge disparities between the number of clinicians in the developed and developing world are one of the main issues facing Africa, he says.

At the same time, Africa can still be a place for innovation in cancer care and offers, he argues, a wealth of diversity from which to develop research.

He notes the importance of online education and skill sharing.
