Prof Richard Sullivan - Kings College London, London, UK

Prof Sullivan speaks with ecancer at the RSM meeting on cancer control to discuss how healthcare systems in developing economies are overcoming barriers to accessing cancer therapies and supportive care.

Considering a global range of healthcare systems, as well as the internal variation in care provision alongside international differences, Prof Sullivan draws attention to the difference in care available between urbanised and isolated regions, where basic care and well-maintained patient databases are still a challenge.

He also considers the pressures on healthcare systems resulting from displaced populations and the refugee crisis, which can move management of chronic diseases to emergency care settings.
