Dr Eva Kantelhardt - Universitätsklinikum Halle, Halle, Germany

Dr Kantelhardt talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the findings of the cancer registry in Ethiopia and the benefits and difficulties of establishing a cancer registry.

They have found that breast is the number one cancer effecting women and colorectal is the number one cancer effecting men. She says that colorectal cancer is not as prominent in other African countries so this is a good example of how important it is to understand the particular situation of each country.

She says that it isn't enough to just establish a cancer registry - the task needs to be successfully handed over to governments to keep it going for long-term benefits.
