ecancermedicalscience is an open access cancer journal focused on under-resourced communities. In order to help reduce global inequalities in cancer care and treatment, we provide free access to all articles from the point of publication and we only charge authors who have specific funding to cover publication costs.

The journal considers articles on all aspects of research relating to cancer, including molecular biology, genetics, pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical reports, controlled trials (in particular if they are independent or publicly funded trials), health systems, cancer policy and regulatory aspects of cancer care.

Prof Richard Sullivan and Dr Dorothy Lombe discuss their paper "Silver linings: a qualitative study of desirable changes to cancer care during the COVID-19 pandemic".

Dr Lombe then goes on to discuss some of the key findings from her Silver Linings research.

Prof Sullivan concludes by asking Dr Lombe, in her professional opinion, where does she believe cancer care is heading in a post-pandemic world? And in particular what she believes will happen to cancer care, services and systems in Sub-Saharan Africa.
