Dr Meg O'Brien - American Cancer Society, Atlanta, USA

Dr Meg O'Brien speaks to ecancer at the Global Health Catalyst Summit 2019 at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts about the global program of the ACS (American Cancer Society).

She outlines the three focus areas of the ACS global program, some of the collaborators, and also ways which this program will be implemented.

Dr O'Brien also speaks about some of the barriers to care, for example financial problems. She draws parallels to the situation with HIV/AIDS, and how we can approach some of these problems in a similar way.

She ends with an overview on vaccinations and cervical cancer, which alongside a change in attitude, could be cured in many areas.
