Dr Carlos José Castro Espinosa - Liga Colombiana contra el Cancer, Bogota, Colombia

Dr Castro speaks with ecancertv at the 2016 World Cancer Congress about successes and challenges in cancer control in Colombia.

He describes lobbying efforts to bring tobacco taxation to a level equal to surrounding nations, and a survey which found the counterpoint argument of tobacco companies, that higher taxes would spur an illegal trade of tobacco companies, was not borne out.

Dr Castro goes on to call for wider involvement in political and policy processes, and introduces topics to be discussed at the upcoming ecancer conference in Colombia
