Prof. Golam Abu Zakaria - Gummersbach Hospital, University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany

Prof Golam Abu Zakaria speaks to ecancer at the Global Health Catalyst Summit 2019 at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts about his work in Bangladesh, Tanzania, and Nicaragua.

This work involves the establishment of departments of medical physics across these three countries, and general medical physics training across a much larger set of low and middle income countries.

He outlines the importance of this, and also some of the improvements already seen in Bangladesh.

Prof Zakaria highlights the need for more collaboration between developing countries, and why this can work so well.
