Dr Shrikhande speaks with ecancer at the RSM meeting on cancer control about providing cancer care in developing economies.

Focusing on gastrointestinal and pancreatic cancers, he considers the comparative incidence and lethality of cancer diagnosis across India, and explains how extensive surgical oncology training has been part of skill and service development in Tata Memorial Center.

Dr Shrikhande also notes the difference in care provision and resource availability across India, as well as the pressures on a health care system which can find thousands of patients in the care of a single clinic.

ecancer previously spoke with clinicians and researchers from Tata Memorial Centre at the 25th Conference on Evidence Based Management of Cancers in India, here.
