Dr Silvia Franceschi - IARC, Lyon, France

Dr Franceschi speaks with ecancertv at IARC 2016 about cancer as a result of infectious pathogens.

With differing rates across populations due to access to healthcare, immunocompromised status and vaccination uptake, viral and bacterial infections are becoming increasingly known as a cancer driver.

Dr Franceschi sets out the need for wider awareness and access to vaccinations, such as subsidising the cost of the HPV vaccine for young women across the world.

Slides containing maps and statistics from Dr Franceshcis' presentation at IARC are available here.
