Dr Franco Cavalli - European School of Oncology, Bellinzona, Switzerland

Dr Cavalli talks to ecancertv at the 2015 World Oncology Forum about the convening of 100 experts who discussed how well the scientific challenge of cancer is being faced.

The appeal, 'Stop Cancer Now!', was launched worldwide, with activities to promote its 10 steps which include early diagnosis and awareness, he explains. Influencing policy makers was the most important factor.

He also tells us about the theme of this year's congress, 'Prevent the preventable', which mainly focuses on tobacco use, obesity, and vaccination.
