Dr Mary Nyangasi speaks to ecancer about an economic evaluation of breast and cervical cancer interventions in Kenya.

High-quality breast and cervical cancer services are not available to all the patients in Kenya and financial toxicity is a great barrier towards optimising cancer care.

Dy Nyangasi describes some of the challenges to decreasing this financial toxicity and what can be done to take the load off these cancer interventions.
