Dr Luyirika talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the measures that need to be taken to improve cancer patients' access to palliative care.

He says that palliative care needs to be part of the medical curriculum and that more resources need to be committed to education, noting the importance of the African Union and regional bodies in Africa in working together towards this goal.
