Dr Verna Vanderpuye - Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra, Ghana

Dr Vanderpuye speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about global variation in, and adherence to, cancer control plans.

She highlights the underutilised role of cancer registries, availability of screening tools including pap smears, and tobacco control plans as means by which global cancer incidence and survival could be tackled.

Dr Vanderpuye also notes the importance of training and education to deliver essential care, and that the essential medicines list may not wholly reflect the regional context in which treatment is given.
