Dr Rayne talks to ecancertv at AORTIC 2015 about establishing an African surgical network.

She explains how people are working together to promote cross-border and intracontinental capacity building in research and training in Africa.

She argues the need to move away from a Europe and US based support system and draw on already existing capacity in the continent. She also notes the importance of expanding that capacity to places previously unreached.

In particular, she notes the facilities and expertise in South Africa and its role as a hub of education from which people can draw knowledge and take it back to their country.
