Dr Melissa Wallace - Cancer Association of South Africa, Johannesburg, South Africa

Dr Wallace speaks with ecancer at AORTIC 2017 about the human behavioural aspects behind effective cancer control interventions.

She notes how aspects of human choice influence uptake of otherwise biomedical interventions, including vaccinations, and considers barriers to cancer control across Africa. 

Dr Wallace goes on to consider possible social and policy changes that might encourage responses, and how communications research plays an essential part alongside healthcare provision in understanding public mood, expectations and outcomes.
