Dr Pandora Rudd - Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre, Malawi

Dr Rudd talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the cervical cancer situation in Malawi, including screening, the HPV vaccine, and treatment options.

She argues that the main barriers are a lack of awareness and lack of infrastructure.

She emphasises prevention as the most important way forward and notes the important role that the government will have in putting this on the agenda.
