Jennifer Dent - BIO Ventures for Global Health, Seattle, USA

Jennifer Dent speaks to ecancer at the 2019 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) meeting about the work BIO Ventures for Global Health are carrying out in Africa.

Dent explains the "African Access Initiative" - which is a program focused on building human capacity to improve patient outcomes in the region; by providing better access to drugs, technology and diagnostic tools for patients.

The organisation works with governing bodies to understand the government's priorities in improving the outcomes of patients. However, they also work alongside healthcare providers to improve cancer care in the clinic.

In the future, Dent hopes to see an improvement in patient outcomes in Africa, along with the early and accurate diagnosis of patients and the availability of state-of-the-art treatments.
