Prof Ahmed Elzawawy - President of AORTIC

Prof Elzawawy talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the development of a roadmap for cancer control in Africa.

He stresses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach which looks at integrating pathology, palliative care, immunotherapy etc. This is, of course, a huge undertaking which involves the input of many organisations.

He speaks with particular reference to the Lalla Salma Foundation in Morocco which is a good example, he says, of a local foundation with international connections that can help achieve a lot both regionally and internationally.
