Dr Canesius Uwizeyimana speaks to ecancer at the Global Health Catalyst Summit 2019 at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts about some of the problems with cancer care in Burundi.

He explains some of the current options for cancer patients in Burundi, but they are few and far between, and if you don't have the money, there are currently no options.

Dr Uwizeyimana outlines a hopeful new project to establish a diagnostics centre, and also improve awareness of cancer issues around the country.
