Prof Richard Sullivan – Kings College London, UK

Prof Richard Sullivan talks to ecancer at the 2012 National Cancer Institute Directors Meeting in Lyon about the value of cancer care and society.


The framing for value cancer care and society is not soley based on finances, but on the principles of how to deliver care, treatment or diagnostic, equally to all patients.


Prof Sullivan stresses that good care must be put into context for all non-communicable diseases in each country, as different countries have different burdens with other diseases. The proportion of money going into care does not always correlate to the outcomes because organisations framing the policies and their attitudes are just as important as funding.
