Dennis Palmer - CIMP Program Director, Mbingo Baptist Hospital, Cameroon

Dennis Palmer speaks to ecancer at the Global Health Catalyst Summit 2019 at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts about his hospital in rural Cameroon.

He explains the importance of collaborations in maintaining medium-scale projects like his, and how many of these projects can help on a large scale. Mr Palmer also describes some of the primary challenges involved in his project including water and electricity access.

He concludes by talking about some of the cultural and religious factors that may hinder providing effective cancer care in these areas.
