Session: Demystifying cancer care in Africa
In 2021, millions of people will be diagnosed with cancer. In Africa, more than 60% will be diagnosed at a late stage.
Imagine if we could reverse this trend, add more healthy years, and empower cancer patients and caregivers on their cancer journey.
Using Medtech we will explore digital cancer care and a new model of medicine that can democratize cancer care for good in Africa.
