Dr Silvia Franceschi - International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, France

Dr Franceschi talks to ecancertv at the World Oncology Forum 2015 about the infections and viruses that are known to lead to the development of certain cancers, and the various ways in which these can be prevented and treated.

One in seven cancers diagnosed worldwide can be linked to an infection or virus and one in three of these occurs in Sub-Saharan Africa, which shows that there are issues of social injustice, she says.

She explains how vaccines and early diagnosis can help tackle these cancers, with reference to HIV and hepatitis C.
