Prof Rochord talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about the establishing of a population based cancer registry in Kasumi, Kenya.

She discusses some of the challenges they have faced and the reasons why cancer registries are so important.

The cancer registry informs where resources should be concentrated in terms of treatment and prevention, she explains.

Registry capacity-building in Kenya is being helped by the National Cancer Institute in the US and has support from the Kenyan government, she says.
