Dr Baker talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the telementoring scheme, Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes).

Though the scheme originates in the USA, they have since teamed up with many institutions in Africa and elsewhere.

People are mentored by experts via video conferencing.

The scheme is free and relies on two key factors, she says - enthusiasm and an internet connection.
