Dr Kirsten Hopkins - International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria

Dr Hopkins speaks with ecancer at AORTIC 2017 about the availability of radiotherapy resources in West Africa.

With increasing demand, Dr Hopkins considers how gaps in maintenance and replacement of cobalt or LINAC units has increased pressure on what units are available.

She encourages further support of health systems to redevelop staffing and infrastructure of radiotherapeutics, and considers how operational units of the IAEA contribute.
