Dr Rajendra Badwe – Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India

Dr Rajendra Badwe talks to ecancer at the 2012 National Cancer Institute Directors Meeting in Lyon about the implementation of standard guidelines and making cancer care more cost effective in India.


Guidelines need to translate across borders and be tailored to specific infrastructures. Due to financial difficulties in India, cancer care is made affordable by not using recently developed drugs and investigating further uses of older drugs.


Dr Badwe also discusses screening in India and the need for solid guidelines before serious implementation of programmes.
