Ms Kwanele Asante - Founder of BreastSens and AORTIC Secretary Treasurer Elect

Ms Asante speaks with ecancer at AORTIC 2017 about bringing patient advocacy and engagement into the scientific program.

Speaking from a legal background, she describes the global provision of healthcare, and outlines how she believes African health systems could improve the care provided to patients and their bargaining position when approaching drugs manufacturers. 

Ms Asante also draws attention to the need for a consistent cancer control plan and education for patients and clinicians, citing her personal experience with cancer, and discusses the difference in experience and expertise of AORTIC member nations in cancer management.
