Dr Julie Gralow (Chief Medical Officer, ASCO) speaks to Dr Eduardo Cazap (Editor-in-chief, ecancer and SLACOM) at ASCO Highlights 2022: Miami Symposium.

Dr Gralow discusses how ASCO and WHO are aiming to work towards improving access to essential cancer medicines, cancer registries and essential cancer diagnostics, particularly in low middle-income contexts. 

She highlights the ongoing importance of collaborating with other organisations, and the LMI countries themselves, to actively implement a national cancer control plan, and therefore support improvements to global healthcare infrastructures.
